With such an overwhelming support for Corbucci i think i'm gonna do the unthinkable and conduct a new poll suggesting that Corbucci's westerns are more enjoyable than Leones!!!(i can sense a huge mass of  deadly hushes away in the distance).

plus I simply don't have alot of respect for cinematic nihilism, which alot people claim is his core schtick.  One of my acquaintances here kind of talked me into giving him another chance-we shall see.

I am curious what exactly you mean by cinematic nihilism? Are you refering to the film's content, like philosophy, or are you refering to the actual method of direction(how he uses his camera)... I've heard the term used before but usually the director is definitively on one end or the other, corbucci qualifies for both

Probably referring to the apocalyptic(for lack of a better word!) vision of his westerns(well Django anyway!),the blood and guts and the fact that once the good guys lose out to the baddies for a change.

well all of his westerns(that i have sceen) are very "apocalyptic", not just DJANGO. the mexican revolution seen in COMPANEROS feels as if it is almost the end of the world. there are different fractions and small individual gangs wanting control over mexico, they torture, hang , shoot and rape anyone who opposes them. almost like the whole world has gone mad!

The Mexican Revolution I've seen in Spaghetti's is like that of the Vietnam war in Apocalypse Now. It is happening around the main characters, it may affect them in a large way (they may have one point been fighting it) but most of the time its a horrific obsticle in the way of the overall goal.

I find Mercenary & Companeros too much in comedy territory to be apocalyptic-but i know what you're saying!
I would say that Great Silence and Navajo Joe are probably closer in feel to the original Django vision.
