sex, death & greed

sex, death & greed highlights from adelaide international film festival

Indulging in the excess of 60s and 70s B-Grade cinema, Sex, Death and Greed serves up a cinematic feast of Spaghetti Westerns, Pulp Horror and Japanese Gangster films from Sergio Leone, Dario Agento and Seijun Suzuki.

Exploiting the codes and conventions of traditional genre films, these filmmakers have achieved international cult status for their trademark baroque visuals, flamboyant widescreen composition, excessive music scores and grotesque violence.  Subverting the moralistic attitude imposed on our fascination with sex, death and greed, this program celebrates the excessive, the erotic and the taboo.
