Shoot The Sun Down: Director's Cut

The same year that Christopher Walken won an Oscar for The Deer Hunter (1978) and Margot Kidder was whisked away in Superman (1978), they starred in the eclectic counter-culture Western Shoot The Sun Down. A stylish meditation on America's history of violence, in the tradition of Sergio Leone (The Good, The Bad And The Ugly), it 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).

Never released on DVD or Blu-ray until now, Shoot The Sun Down is a hallucinatory Western long overdue for rediscovery.
