For a Few Dollars More
Guy driving, guy in the passenger's seat, two of us hiding in the trunk. Four for the price of two on a Friday night at the drive-in movie theater. To see a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.
The early autumn's night air has a chill. The early autumn's night air is filled with girls -- in other cars, at the concession counter, or as some kind of vague possibility. We're watching Clint, and we fire up our own cigarillos.
Ennio Morricone's score begins to haunt the blasty, hollow, low-fi speaker.
We realize we have entered a certifiable alternate reality.
We even get to see the peculiar Klaus Kinski as Juan Wild, the Hunchback.
