| 'Lo Mein' Western
The relationships between international cinema are rarely as evident as in the Western genre. The Western is one of the few truly original flavors of film, with its dusty landscapes and drawn out intensity.

The Swordsman in Double Flag Town is a film that demonstrates this so well that it - for some reason - is not in favor. Perhaps it is too Chinese for most.

I'm not sure if the term I've used, 'Lo Mein Western,' is even used at all. Its just the only way I can describe this film is to compare it to Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns.

It's unfortunate that it is too Chinese for most people to watch, because it heralds the same human spirit of Kurosawa and Leone. The actors are point on. It's an incredible film, and I fear, something will never again be seen quite like it.
