The Sword and the Claw (Kiliç Aslan)

Thu - Sat, Apr 12 - 14 / 9 pm
Sun, Apr 15 / 7 pm
Directed by Natuk Baytan
1975, Turkey, 109 min
Turkish, Greek and English with subtitles

Before the infamous Turkish Star Wars – there was The Sword and the Claw! American Genre Film Archive’s latest 4K preservation from the only 35mm theatrical print in existence is a wild ride through that same hallucinogenic netherworld, and features genre legend Cünyet Arkin in his most iconic role. This is Conan the Barbarian meets The Three Stooges meets Dolemite – with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals and lunatic dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle.

Reviews

The whole thing is a blast…the dialogue is absurd, the fight scenes ridiculous and the costumes about as goofy as they come but the movie has heart and that counts for a lot.
