Yeah the grindhouse top 20 list will be published at the Deuce this weekend, and there’ll also be a topic and a frontpage entry for that here at the QTA of course.

As for Bio’s question. i don’t have a camera. but i do have audio of that, which i might publish in the future. but i have limited time. i have audio of all my 2007 interviews, none of which i’ve had the time yet to edit and put online…

So what do you guys think about this list? print it out, check off what you’ve seen!

I think The Great Silence wouldn’t even be good at all if it weren’t for the ending. I mean it was such a rare thing to see such a down ending in a spaghetti western, they even shot an up ending which can be seen in the new dvd edition. Another thing about that film is The Great Silence, the idea of having a lead character who can’t speak was a Corbucci trademark and I dunno the whole movie was so odd, I’ve never seen anything quite like it ever.



To me the bestb western is Once Upon A Time In The West. The way it is shot and just the story. Those were the golden days of cinema, Robards as Cheyenne and Peter Fonda was also in it. That film is the Leone trademark I tells ya.

i don’t agree, the Great Silence, is a very good film with or without this ending. he could have killed the bad guy at the end, still it would have been great. it has a strong feeling of tragedy that runs through it that makes it really unique. the idea of having a mute character came on the set, from JL Trintignant. and it works great. the hero looks good, and the bad guy as well… Apart from that, the set is great (check out Day of the outlaws by Andre De Toth another wonderful western set up in a snowy village). and the atmosphere is priceless… several scenes with Frank Wolf as the sherif are not very good, though. hands down, one of my personal favourite is the scene where the girl takes care of the hero after he got beat up: no dialogue, shot with long lenses, very dark and yet gentle and erotic. an amazing scene!

After I watched The Great Silence, I watched this movie too cause I didn’t know much about it, even if I loved Andre De Toth for House of Wax at that time, or even The Indian Fighter and Hidden Fear.



Western + snow = priceless atmosphere. That for sure. It changes the whole thing after Leone’s sweating characters.
