Red Thread Film Club Presents: The Good, The Bad, The Weird

Kim Jee-won's 2008 film The Good, the Bad and the Weird flips the script on the typical remake narrative with this South Korean version of a Western classic. In 1930s' Manchuria, an encounter on a train triggers an epic crusade for a treasure map, prompting a marathon chase in hot pursuit of the loot. This film expertly borrows from the spaghetti Western, as well as adding their own brand of slapstick violence and jaw dropping practical stunts. Come along and get weird with this unapologetically extra and entertaining ride of a film!


Red Thread Film Club run a Glasgow-based screening series in local venues. Our themes? None in particular. We are driven by a dedication to screen the most interesting films in the most interesting places.


This screening is part of Scalarama, a celebration of cinema, for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, taking place every September.
