01.15.06Netflix continuing my education in Italian westerns... it's kind of great because I get to see all of these movies for the first time. QT's comments about the only other Parolini movie that I've seen (Five for Hell) are right on though... for whatever reason there is tons of acrobatics in this... completely strange. and also a very Robert Rodriguez idea of hiding a rifle inside a banjo. It's cool to watch a movie and make the connection based on Quentin's notes.

The movie is borderline too goofy for me I think. I like Lee Van Cleef and all but at a certain point i yearn for just a little bit of realism and logic. I can buy these guys all being uncanny perfect shots and stuff, but when there's a dude hopping all over the place and bounding up into the air to get the drop on someone, I have to think about why they don't just shoot each other and get it over with. I did really like Sabata's pistol though... it looked like it had four barrels and another two hidden in the handle so he could be all sneaky and stuff. awesome.
