DUCK, YOU SUCKER (Uncut Version)
aka A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE (GIU LA TESTA)
1971, MGM Repertory, 155 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Leone

In the last - and least-seen - of Sergio Leone’s epic Westerns, earthy peasant Rod Steiger and Irishman James Coburn (hiding from the I.R.A.) find themselves tossed into the middle of the Mexican Revolution. Widely ignored on its release, DUCK YOU SUCKER looks better and better with each year: Leone’s blend of explosive action and boozy poetry is just strange enough to work. With music by Ennio Morricone.
