Hang on Il Buono, if Clint is for Eastwood, that means u want the Republicans to win!!! AAAHHH, Clint's history as a Republican governor is scary enough given his legendary status....

Sorry, my mistake... ;D

OUTIW and GBU of course, but I also liked High Plains Drifter and High Noon very much.  Both are some of the finest movies ever made IMO.

Agreed, the rape scene in OUTIA make the film hard to digest because it makes it difficult to identify with de Niro's character.  In my humble opinion leaving the scene out would do good to the movie.

I'd say it was the tale end of the expressionist movement, although some would argue that only the silent films were expressionist. I'd argue that although M has sound the style is still firmly in the expressionist tradition. Of course, the German Expressionist movement was really killed off in 1933, for fairly obvious reasons.

Thx for clearing that up, Redyred.

All bottles work for me...

By the way, about M, is it really expressionist?

I just wondered if it's known which were Leone's favourite movies (from other directors I mean)?  And something else: what was his favourite music?

No, but there's a cartoon film called 'Fievel Goes West' which is sort of a western and Disney's latest 2D animation film release, 'Home on the Range' is a western with some cows as the main characters.

You should also check out the short cartoon I think is called 'Texas Tom' with Tom & Jerry.  Hilarious!

Saw this movie standing in the local video store. It has Lee Van Cleef in it.  Any thoughts on this one?

Did not really care for it, but the director's more recent film 21 grams I found really excellent and one of the best films of the year.  It starred the amazing Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Naomi Watts.  Amazing performances, it's strange Penn got his oscar for Mystic River and not for this film.

True, QT has some guts, especially to end his film like this (the Bride/Bill duel).

One remark: the scene where Bride returns from the desert after being buried, it made me think a lot of the opening of High Plains Drifter (with our other favourite avenging angel Eastwood).  The heat distorting the image, the music...  Did anyone notice it too?

Great movie!  Great atmosphere. I like the portrayal of these simple characters who don't talk much and live by these simple moral rules.  Although taken with a grain of salt, it's probably the most realistic western I have seen.

Very nice film, nice camerawork, very moody, good music, great performances.  Don't remember much of it, but it's definately worth watching.  A true classic.
