I watched half of it last night(tired) and I enjoyed what I saw. I might even enjoy it more the next time around. There were so many great shots and locations one can't take it all in at once! Or one half in two nights...

I love how Joe's presence in the movie is like his relation to the outlaws: He's like a phantom that appears when you least expect him Cool That scene where he takes the train was classic spaghetti!

What I find fascinating in Corbucci's films during the time of Navajo Joe/Django/Hellbenders is the very refined camera set ups and editing, particularly in Hellbenders. It's so damn smooth and on-the-spot that it sticks out compared to his more average, in comparison, efforts in cinematography and editing, like Great Silence, Mercenary and Companeros(though I adore those films, I'm not knocking them).

One thing I also loved in this film was the locations. What I enjoy the most about seeing a new Corbucci film is how he chooses and captures a new environment, but after seeing Silence, Django, and Mercenary I would wonder how many other options for unique and different-from-the-last environments he had left. Because of this and the trailer I was under the impression it would be average spaghetti landscapes and locations but I was extremely impressed with the feeling of limitless, almost dreamlike green hills/mountains and plains. I should've expected it at some point! I don't know about you, friend, or friends, but I'm a sucker for greenery in spaghetti westerns, which is one of the reasons why I hold MNIN and Face to Face in high regard. I really love that shot from the train window of that huge-assed canyon region.

Anyway, I'll finish this later Grin Embarrassed

If you think hard enough.
