I picked it up for just 45 dollars (Canadian but that hardly matter with the exchange rate now). The movies all look great and Duck, You Sucker is soo fucking good.

Yeah, I just had the opportunity to finally see it. I was blown away. I've been raving about it on the "Duck, You Sucker" thread all day.

review of the box set at SLATE: http://www.slate.com/id/2169227

Not a bad overview of the films, except the guy's myopic reading of DYS. Also, maybe he should have given some credit to James Bond for also contributing to the invention of contemporary pop culture.

I read the title of the article and quickly, but calmy, closed the window.

I read the title of the article and quickly, but calmy, closed the window.
A shame, as the final paragraph is quite exciting to read:

Quote
Though the "Dollars" movies are now justly regarded as classics--they were
critically dismissed at the time as sadistic trash--Leone has never quite
received his due as the progenitor of a new kind of movie. In speaking of 1960s
European cinema, critics sing the praises of Fellini, Godard, Truffaut,
Antonioni, and Bergman--and yet Leone, whose influence matches any of those
filmmakers', barely gets a mention. Introducing a cinephilic sensibility to mass
audiences, his movies prefigured our borderless pop culture and served as a key
text for future filmmakers, from Martin Scorsese to John Woo to Quentin
Tarantino. To watch the "Dollars" movies now isn't just to behold the
reinvention of a genre--it's to be transported to the birth of a pop aesthetic.

Of course, you and I have long known that Leone is the equal of Fellini, Godard, et al., but it's great to see a mainstream journalist stating it so matter-of-factly.

Agreed.

Okay I gave it a read after skimming through the last paragrapgh.
I don't agree with his views on DYS but overall it was exactly as I expected.
