ONE-EYED JACKS
1961, Universal, 141 min, USA, Dir: Marlon Brando

Originally intended as a project for director Stanley Kubrick (based on various scripts by Sam Peckinpah and Rod Serling, among others), ONE-EYED JACKS became (in)famous as the only film directed by Marlon Brando – who also stars as an outlaw bent on taking revenge on former friend Karl Malden. A surreal and often stunning film that anticipated postmodern Westerns like Monte Hellman’s THE SHOOTING and Peckinpah’s own THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE.
