Yes, welcome. What part of Mexico are you from? I'd be particularly interested in hearing your views on Duck, You Sucker.

Yes, welcome. What part of Mexico are you from? I'd be particularly interested in hearing your views on Duck, You Sucker.

I'm from Zapopan, Jalisco (in the west of Mexico).

I have two different views about Duck, You Sucker:

     The first one is about the film itself: I think it's great to see the way Leone's style had grown up at that point, you see all his trademarks, the beautiful shots of landscapes, the  graphic description of the characters through the extreme closeups of faces, the intensity of Morricone's Soundtrack, the story telling also improved from his past works...


    The second one is about the historic context of the film: I see this aspect the same way I see the aspect of the Civil War in GBU, Leone is not trying to give us an history lesson, he's just filming his particular version of the history, and yes he can't help to describe the Mexican Revolution as a simple class conflict, rich against poor, which is accurate to a certain point, but personally I would have made more emphasis on the fact that the intellectual creators of this fight were all middle class, upper middle class people.

     Finally I can say I like James Coburn, as the Irish fighter, but I don't find Rod Steiger very convincing as Juan Miranda (this is just my personal taste). I rank this movie as my 5th  favorite Leone movie.

I am probably older than most of you, I think,

What should I say then? I was 12 years old when FOD was released here in Italy (1964)!!!!
Anyway, welcome aboard, Lovelyrita! ;)
