The Salvation/Once Upon a Time in the West
We continue our Salute to Westerns with twos films, a contemporary take on the western, and a Sergio Leone film that defined the genre: The Salvation and Once Upon a Time in the West. They both share common plots, and are both great examples of why westerns are some of the most well done films in cinema. We also speak with Kristian Levring, the director of The Salvation about the film, and how westerns shaped his film-making career.
