Luca Asta Sardelis,
Sunshine's gun is the same Mauser model like the one that was used to build Han Solo's blaster in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). The Mauser automatic pistol was made in Germany until 1936. See more »
"Deadlock" came as something of a surprise as I only bothered to hunt down a copy because of the inclusion of Can on the soundtrack. While Can's contributions are quite notable -- their music works perfectly with the stark imagery -- the film itself holds up quite well on its own. Shot almost entirely in the desert, the filmmakers make use of the threadbare environment and utilize it to heighten the sense of isolation and persecution which propel the characters of the film. Slightly overlong at 92 minutes, "Deadlock" is nevertheless well worth investigating.
