Cowboys und Indians

For the cover of their seminal debut album, Entertainment!, the British band Gang of Four, following the example of those wacky Situationists, took frames from an old Hollywood Western and turned them into a comic strip commenting on the white man's economic exploitation of Native Americans. The Sons of Great Bear, a first stab at the Western genre by East Germany's state-run DEFA studio, feels like a movie based on that comic. Read my full review, just posted over at Teleport City.
