I loved it too. There’s a sense of tranquility in Leone’s films. The ease of time, I like how he slows down his films even in the crescendo of the resolution. There will be no other director like him, especially in a western.


#7

right and that’s what makes the final crescendo so powerful… you’re close to the characters but at the same you’re watching History being made, just like the final shot in once upon a time in the west. there is a shot i like even more in the good the bad and the ugly, toward the end of the film, Clint and Eli Wallach are walking down a path, talking shit, then they just make a right turn, the camera rises and you realise that they’ve just arrived in this huge military camp! it’s so powerful! the scene with the extasy of gold, is my all time favorite scene !

Le Professionel…

it’s a great tune indeed… it is ruined for me and for most of the French audience because this music was used in an ad for dog food… so everytime i hear it, i think of a fucking german shepperd running, and not of Belmondo. oh, well…
