"Part Luis Bunuel, part Sergio Leone, this bizarre, ultra-violent Western features a brutal, black-clad gunslinger who, accompanied by his young son, sets off on a murderous mission to challenge four zen masters of gunfighting. When his mission is complete he then goes on a quest for peace and personal redemption, but finds that death is never very far away." [box cover note]
