The Shooting
» Language: English, Chinese subtitles
» Length: 90 min
» Directed by: Monte Hellman, 1967.
» Starring: Jack Nicholson, Warren Oates.

Two men are hired by a mysterious woman to accompany her to a town located many miles across the desert. During their journey, they are closely tracked by a black-clad gunslinger who seems intent on killing all of them. Starring Jack Nicholson and Warren Oates, this existential Western shot on a fistful of dollars is an all-time great.


Have you ever been on an acid Western trip?

A sub-genre of the Western film that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, the acid Western combines the philosophical ambitions of critically acclaimed films with the excesses of the “Spaghetti” Westerns and the outlook of the 1960s counter-culture. Works from this oft-overlooked and undervalued genre subvert conventions by showing anarchy and madness at the heart of white America, and often include a fair pinch of warped spiritualism and Pythonesque black humour.

This October, Meridian Space will be screening some of the best acid Westerns ever made.
