I have yet to see Hellbenders, Che c'entriamo noi con la rivoluzione and the one with Mitchum's son. But Mercenary I doubt can be beat.

Hellbenders might be able to beat it, depending on tastes.

"Che c'entriamo..." is also excellent. Certainly better then his last two westerns.

When I watch Django and The Mercenary, I'll vote in this poll. Right now I don't feel I've seen enough Corbucci to be justified in the voting of this poll.

Well, it is strange you say so because, though I haven't see the movie yet, it features 2 actors of a kind which make me presume it was aimed exclusively at the domestic market. Though Gassman may have a little notoriety in USA, he wasn't famous for being an adventurous genre (least of all a Zapata western!) actor: he gave his best in comedies and dramatic movies. But I really can't imagine how Villaggio can result attractive to a foreign audience, though he was a brilliant (sometimes) comedian. That makes me curious about the movie itself.  I'll try to get a copy.

I thought Gassman was very good and very comical. His manic tantrums always made me laugh. Villaggio was the straight man and less likable.

So, I finally got DJANGO in the mail yesterday, I was very, very impressed.

Everything about it seemed to work, the opening scene just sets a marvelous tone for the film. The muddy path where Django drags his coffin along, coupled with that badass song  8), is one great opening. And, then next scene, really lets you know what your in for. Where a lady is being whipped by Mexican bandits, and is seemingly "saved" for the viewer to discover these "saviors" actually just want to burn her alive.

The only thing that i didn't like was the guy who dubbed Nero. He just didn't sound quite right to me. And also, there were a couple scenes where the English audio had dialogue that was just painful to watch, but when i watched it with Italian the dialogue those scenes were great.

It was great, and I have no complaint about the camerawork. It may be a little sloppy at times, but what the hell else do you expect from Corbucci, anyway? The three Corbucci films I've seen definitely had some sloppy camerawork at times.

As much as i enjoyed Django, and I don't think it uprooted The great Silence as my favorite non-Leone spag. However, when I see The Mercenary, I'll officially vote in this poll.

Glad to see that you enjoyed it. It's certainly one of my favorites (if not my favorite). You should probably catch the third installment to Corbucci's "mud and blood" westerns "The Specialist".

I'm glad you finally saw "Django". Real Corbucci touch, isn't it? This is so good that I have to wonder which is the best Corbucci either this or "The Great Silence".

Let us know what you think of "The Mercenary".

The Mercenary FINALLY arrived in the mail yesterday. I watched Compañeros that night and The Mercenary this morning. Wow, let me tell ya, the Mercenary was great. It's in my top three Non-Leones now, along with The Great Silence and Face to Face.

But, I think the Great Silence is a more "remarkable Spaghetti Achievement" than The Mercenary. I enjoy it more, and I think it's an all around better film. It gets my vote. It's the definitive spag in the sense that it turns every convention of the traditional western on its head. Revolvers become Mausers. The desert becomes the snow. It also takes the themes of Spaghetti Westerns and exaggerates them to an extreme point. Laconic gunslingers become mute gunslingers.

I'll probably leave my review of The Mercenary when I feel like writing more.
