Title: Colt Navy 1851 (a W by noodles_leone)
Post by: Silenzio on August 12, 2006, 06:56:57 PM

I watched the two segments of noodles_leone's film Colt Navy 1851 on youtube, and I must say, I am VERY impressed. In the first segment you can definitely the influence of Leone, while in the second segment, that bit of Peckinpah in the mixture is clear (i.e., slow-motion deaths, the credits coming up during a freeze frame while everything turns black and white just like in The Wild Bunch . . . you'll know what I mean when you see it).

Please watch these exercises in style if you haven't already, you won't regret it. I applaud noodles_leone.

I also thought the use of Morricone's music was great, especially by the fact that he used the more obscure, yet touching, yet not too obscure music (Il Tramonto).

EDIT: I've been watching his other stuff too, it's good. Of course, I can only look at levels of cinematography and style and such, I can't understand that language, so I don't know about the dialogue/plot/anything else.

I just wrote him a PM about how impressed I was.  I didn't know a digital camera could capture that kind of quality :)

I speak to Noodles Leone frequently and I too complimented his fantastic work. Has anyone seen the interogation scene? So freakin' cool!  ;D

I'm really astonished by the reactions over here i didn't expect that!

I have to thank all of you a lot, that's really very encouraging, it helps me to go on on this way... I'm not very "skilled" when it comes to thank people, but I want you to know that I'm really touched by your comments, guys...

But please feel also free to post constructive criticisms, I need that too...

(Silenzio, you're the first one to notice the persuasive use of peckinpah's clichés on that scene... but i suppsoe you're the first one who is really familiar with peckinpah and who see this scene:) The aim was clearly to be peckinpah-like)
