The Great Silence
Western • NR • 1968 • 1 hr 46 min
Simply astounding, god I love this movie. It’s so dark and cold (literally too) for a western. EVERYBODY SHOULD SEE IT.
At first I hated it. But I have come to be haunted by it, so I grudgingly give it my respect. It’s a very well made film anyway.
Somber, unusal, maybe a bit slow but surprising in many ways
Great movie with a unique style and memorable score. As good as the Italian Western Classics by Sergio Leone.
One of the best Italian Westerns. Must watch for friday movie night.
The best non-Leone spaghetti-western.
