I'm still holding out hope that he's in it in some way, maybe not starring but...

this film is beautiful. i even expected to hate it when i skimmed through it before watching, because it looked cheesy. but it is directed extremely well. i agree that the slow motion shots were overused, but that's the only drawback to the directing for me.. filled with artistic shots, constant pans, and interesting scenes..

i gotta say, i do hate that music though.. i love the movie so much im tempted to edit a new soundtrack into it.. ha... but it also makes it kinda funny i guess..

if you're not feelin keoma, you probably dont have a taste for cinematic qualities... i guess if i was just looking for a good movie, i probably wouldnt appreciate it all that much.. but i think its brilliantly done.

Hey pixelated, would it be possible to edit out just the vocals of the score and leave the music?

well, generally editing out vocals doesnt work all that great unless they arent too dominant in the mix.. which these vocals definitely are... hah

but there are some moments where there is music with no vocals, some of its not all that bad... could use those and also could do some cut ups of the sections with vocals and then make a new vocal-less soundtrack out of the original music.. but i dont think you could ever have all of the original songs/song without the vocals.


i think this movie would be waaaay better if you didnt have to listen to that woman or man... geez.. soooo bad.

the woman is death singing to keoma, the man from what i've read is Franco Nero. the music tells the story .
i thought it was really bad when i first heard it but it strangly grows on you, when his father is killed it works really well.

i did notice that the music worked well with the story at certain points. the singing itself is just so horrible though... its hard to get past it for the most part.

They were trying to copy Leonard Cohen in "McCabe & Mrs. Miller". (much better)

Keoma is actually my least favourite SW.

I did a review of it on IMDb a while back - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074740/usercomments-13

i thought the directing techniques were used very well. i agree on the slow motion shots, way overused and not even use properly in my opinion- but camera angles/different point of view shots, the pans, and the flashbacks.. loved em all.

the dialogue did also leave something to be desired, but i wrote it off as a bad dubb since i saw the english version.

i agree... but you cant judge a film by its music alone! the score compliments the movie, not makes it(imo)

how about a review for the movie instead of the soundtrack?  Wink

To me, there is no movie as long as that soundtracks playing! Grin
