The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Directed by Sergio Leone
Finally, we break the streak of dull, pretentious movies with probably the most famous spaghetti western of all time. This is just a fun watch, which is, unfortunately, a nice change.
The three eponymous characters (guess which one Clint Eastwood is) are all completely obsessed with tracking down gold that was stolen from the Confederacy. It is pretty reminiscent of Treasure of Sierra Madre, but there is much more manliness involved (yeah, I said it; Eastwood is manlier than Bogart).
Don't get me wrong; I think this movie is amazing. However, I never really understood why it was considered such a masterpiece. Sure, the scenery is amazing but it seems weird that such a fun, entertaining movie is so critically acclaimed. Am I jaded now after seeing such boring movies?
Fantastic film and the cemetery scene is flawless.
Eli Wallach and Sergio Leone communicated in French since Wallach didn't know Italian and Leone didn't know English.
Eli Wallach almost died several times throughout filming.
Sorry for the short review but I have done a lot of writing today!
