Finally finally finally get to cross this off the list. Somehow I'd heard this was an overt comedy like almost slapstick. It really wasn't but it did kind of bridge the opera of Once Upon A Time in the West with the excess of Once Upon A Time in America for me. It's just a bit too long, too many explosions, too much face. Or maybe it's that faces like Eastwood and Van Cleef and Wallach and Fonda and Bronson are more interesting to look at than Rod Steiger's. In any case, this was good... probably really good compared with a lot of Italian westerns, but not as good as Leone's other stuff.

Lots of explosions. lots and lots and lots of explosions. But also lots of revolution talk. For whatever reason... the sly trickery between Steiger and James Coburn didn't play for me like that between Eastwood and Wallach. I can't really say why... maybe if Good, Bad, Ugly didn't exist then I would find this great...

ok... let me see if I can fit one more in before tonight's International Thrills triple feature to end the fest. I've seen this next movie before but got a Blu of it during Fantastic Fest and have been looking for an excuse to revisit it ever since.
