Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE GREAT SILENCE
IL GRANDE SILENZIO
Dir: Sergio Corbucci
Amid mountainous Utah snowdrifts, oppressed Mormons hide out from psycho - even by his standards - Klaus Kinski’s bounty hunters, while mute Jean-Louis Trintignant’s Silence signs on to avenge Vonetta McGee’s husband. With chilling Dolomites locations. Music by Ennio Morricone. In English.
Confederate officer Joseph Cotten and his three sons escort a hero’s coffin home despite Union patrols, banditos, vengeful Indians, a stalking posse, and a buttinsky reverend - only trouble is, the coffin’s packed with stolen greenbacks intended to rejuvenate the cause. In English.
Horseless, dark-clad, blazingly blue-eyed Franco Nero enters dragging a coffin through the inches-thick mud of a crummy town fought over by red-hooded clansmen and a flock of banditos. Original of at least 30 official and unofficial sequels. Quentin Tarantino lists this film as No. 3 in his 20 favorite spaghetti Westerns; RESERVOIR DOGS’ infamous ear-cutting scene was a direct reference. In Italian with English subtitles.
