Ferreri's follow-up to La Grande bouffe is an outlandish, absurdist, spoof spaghetti western, a riotous reenactment of the events leading up to the Battle of Little Big Horn, starring Mastroianni as a ludicrously vain General Custer and Michel Piccoli as an effeminate Buffalo Bill. The political satire is both comic and caustic: anachronisms abound (Paris stands in for the Wild West, Nixon is president) and parallels are drawn between America's genocidal Indian Wars and its intervention in Vietnam.
