The alluring ecstasy of gold

April 27, 2019

Tarantino acclaimed this as the finest directed movie of all time.


The Good (Clint Eastwood), the Bad (Lee Van Cleefe) and the Ugly (Eli Wallach) hunt for a buried cache of stolen Confederate gold hidden in a cemetery.


Plot twists - a who knows what / when dependency - and turns galore. But no better use of dizzying motion blur to find the grave marked Arch Stanton.


Leone and Morricone magic at non-romanticising Italian Spaghetti Western peak.


A brilliant ending to the Dollars trilogy, the prequel.
