The same year that Christopher Walken (Seven Psychopaths) won an Oscar for The Deer Hunter (1978) and Margot Kidder was whisked away in Superman (1978), they starred in of David Leeds’ counter-culture Western Shoot the Sun Down.
A stylized meditation on America’s history of violence, in the tradition of Sergio Leone (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly), the movie observes the intersection of a former Confederate soldier-turned-bounty hunter (Walken), a British maidservant desperate to escape indentured servitude (Kidder), and a vicious mercenary in search of Native American scalps and Montezuma’s gold (Geoffrey Lewis, Miss Nobody).
Kino’s restored director’s cut of Shoot the Sun Down, director/co-writer Leeds’ only feature, marks the film’s first-ever release on Blu-ray or DVD.
