Also, it's easy to look down on Corbucci, who is often considered as nothing more than a genre moviemaker.
And for this reason, it's also elitist to chose the "quite obscure" Corbucci since Leone did reach mainstream and critic recognition. For instance, QT didn't even mention Leone during the Django Unchained promotion, while we know that Leone has been one of his major influences since Reservoir Dogs.
The "elitist" point is something I always consider in someones taste.
I was talking about Fabio Testi in Dead Men Ride and while I think he's brilliant someone said his performance AND the film is much better than any Clint & Leone film... OK, the performance might be debatable but the film???
I thought this might be elitism rearing it's ugly head.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE films like Django, Great Silence, And God Said To Cain, Cemetery Without Crosses, Dead Men Ride,A Stranger In Town, Blindman, Sartana (I could go on and on) but as good as they are I don't think they're on the level of Leone's films.
Perhaps I'm biased since I've loved the Dollars Trilogy most my life whereas I didn't discover Corbucci until about 20 years ago.
