The Conversation between Eastern Westerns and Western Westerns Continues

Ford speaks to Kurosawa who speaks to Eastwood (and of course Leone) and Kurosawa also speaks to Sturges – and now Eastwood speaks to Lee Sang-il


  1. Mustn’t leave out The Good, The Bad, and The Weird. 😉

  2. Looks better than Eastwood’s. I really like that actor, he was in Inception.

      Still holding out hope for an Inception prequel, set circa 1962, shot in crisp Gilbert Taylor black-and-white, where the ‘extraction’/’inception’ technology is just being developed and the pioneer mind-invading team includes J. Edgar Hoover, Bobby Kennedy, the younger version of Michael Caine’s Inception character (played by the younger version of Michael Caine; cf. Terence Stamp in The Limey), and Howard Hughes. (If they want Leo to be involved again, he could play Hoover and Hughes.) Also maybe the younger version of Diana Rigg and/or Barbara Bain.

      • You sly dog, you. And only after it’s too late do they realize the danger of letting the, shall we say, conflicted Mr. Hoover loose in someone’s head.

          Heh, indeed. Though I still think this should be a Chris Nolan project; whatever their interests, I have a hard time seeing the Wachowski siblings taking on a story about an elite team’s perilous mission through a high-tech psychic dream-world.

          I didn’t mention whose head J. Edgar, RFK, et al. are loose in, but you can probably figure it out from the title: I Have a Dream within a Dream.

    I don’t know a lick of Japanese — but JOB, you’re speaking my language.
