Tscherkassky concentrates on central motifs from a Sergio Leone classic, zeroing in on the hero stumbling across a vast cemetery and his head as he dangles from the gallows. But only by way of its defects is the medium of film made tangible. The blisters, scratches, distortions and cracks overwhelm the narrative, shatter the illusion and give rise to a richly ambiguous, new story.
