HEAVY MIDNITES: A Fistful of Fingers (US Premiere!)

“Loaded with unashamedly sophomoric humor, but fired with a kind of early Richard Lester-esque elan that doesn’t run out of gas, A Fistful of Fingers shows more wit and invention than most of its no-budget Brit saddlemates and announces a precocious talent in 20-year-old Edgar Wright.” – Variety, 1995

The greatest Western ever made (in Somerset) is finally here! To celebrate its 20th anniversary, we’ve unearthed Edgar Wright’s nearly-impossible-to-see debut feature for its long-overdue US PREMIERE! A wildly funny, stupefyingly silly Spaghetti Western spoof, A Fistful of Fingers is a jaw-dropping gag-a-minute mashup of Sergio Leone, Monty Python and the Zucker Brothers, hilariously fueled by its young cast & crew’s can’t miss enthusiasm and teen spirit attitude. It’s a one-of-a-kind parody packed wall-to-wall with irreverent humor, dusty charm and pop culture obsession, every frame filled with Wright’s unmistakable & completely contagious love for movie-making. Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first to experience the film that launched a stellar career!

Written & Directed by Edgar Wright, 1995, DCP, 78 min.
