backtrack; The good, the bad and the ugly (1966)

good-bad-ugly

Whether you call it »revisionist« or »alternative«, the sixties brought a long and winding decline of morals to western movies, with the italian variety adding its own distinct spices of contradictory beauty and sordid cynicism. No one is really »good« in this famously long, slow, and violent spaghetti epic – there are only different levels of self-serving cruelty.

Visually and musically hypnotic. In my book of greed.

  1. Hypnotic is a good word for this. Definitely in my book.

  2. I thought this one was somewhat controversial and would elicit differing opinions, but everyone seem to agree strongly on its greatness!
