In this psychedelic western, a young man stumbles through the Mexican Sierra, shot and half bled to death, carrying a suitcase containing the loot from a bank robbery. Passing out, he is found by Charles Dump, a former gold miner living on the outskirts of the ghost town Deadlock with his daughter.

A who's-gonna-get-the-money between three men in the middle of nowhere. Guns, a couple illusive gals, enough dust and grime to pollute a small country, and a soundtrack by Can. Leone dipped in a fuel canister then set ablaze. Highly recommended. My only complaint: there should have been more Can.
This psychedelic Sauerkraut Western, with German actors, shot in the Negev and released in German and English dubs is more weird ambiance than anything else. No story, just a suitcase full of cash. Maybe I should've taken acid or something before watching this, but honestly this is a film you could watch drunk or whatever and it would probably enhance the experience. Jodorowsky fans may enjoy this more than I did.
For certain people that grew into this whole cinema obsession through Leone (or, let's be honest, Cowboy Bebop), spaghetti is a comfort food. Deadlock is a vibe you settle into, nominally tense but also extremely relaxed, as the contrivances Klick uses to keep everyone in the titular deadlock are increasingly silly. Best performance is by Can when they were still being credited as "The Can."
Ein Film der leider nicht die Aufmerksamkeit die er verdient. Ein Film der sich keinem Genre zuordnen lässt. Mit einem grossartigen Mario Adorf. Mit hypnotischen Bildern und dichter Atmosphäre. Eine Empfehlung wert !!!!
Psychedelic in its sickeningly bright setting, use of strobe effects, and soundtrack by the legendary German group CAN (billed here as The Can), Deadlock is a primal force of violence and lust. Like many westerns, the film converges onto a single violent scene, revealing its true self and the true villain of the film in one quick swoop.
