NotesNeo-spaghetti western in which a blind gunfighter saves the day. This film is so bad you won't believe it was made in 1994, and regarding the antics of the blind gunfighter it goes beyond the nonsense in "Scent of a Woman". Daniel Knauf emailed me and kindly didn't come down on me like a ton of bricks. Part of his comments follows: ' Unlike "Scent of a Woman" or "The Miracle Worker," "BJ" was never intended to be a realistic drama portraying the trials of the disabled. I thought this was obvious. The log-line "A blind gunfighter" can only fall into 2 possible genres: farce or fantasy. My attempt fell more into the laterr, comic-book mold of "Iron Man" or "Daredevil." Specifically, it was a Western riff on the Japanese "Zatoichi: The Blind Samurai" films of the '60s and '70s. It was not my intention to depict--nor do I think the audience at large construed "BJ" as--anything resembling the realistic tribulations borne by the blind.'
