Marlina The Murderer In Four Acts

A gorgeous western set in Indonesia. Seven bandits arrive at the house of a widow with the intention to rob and rape her. They end up dead and she remains. It is an excellent turn of the damsel-in-distress trope on its head. Yet in many ways this is a film which glories in the tradition of classic westerns as well as subverts them, from the electric chords twanging the approach of the desperadoes, to the journeys on horseback over the dusty rugged landscape. Absolutely excellent, go see it if you have the chance.
