1  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / Re:Thoughts on this film on: September 17, 2003, 04:17:54 PM
I am in agreement with more recent posts. Seen many times, only full version once and it all makes much more sense. It's the greatest. It's beautiful. Coburn combines great physical prescence with an emotionally humane performance as he did in The Illustrated Man. Coburn's accent, though funny, does not distract from a solid performance.
Pity about the historical contradiction of Mexican revolution and formation of IRA. I was a bit gutted when I found out for some reason.
Favourite scene is when Juan reaches Mesa Verde and finds it full of soldiers engaging in repression. The robbery is pretty brilliant too. I always think Mesa Verde when encountering dissappointment.
As a political spectator and futurologist I find this film to be my inspiration. Kinship and compassion may not be as strong as government, ideology and people with guns, but they're what it's all about.

I thought Silence was Sergio Solima? I might be wrong. He was good too. Anyone seen Face To Face?

I love films where music is symbiotic with imagry: eg
Bruno Bozzetto's Allegro Non Tropo
Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi
Music greatly increases the emotional impact of the visual. Nothing tops the Morricone/leone collaborations though. Nowt.
