Fistful of Pasta opens with this:
THE GREAT SILENCE is Sergio Corbucci's magnum opus and is generally regarded as the best 'non-Sergio Leone' Spaghetti Western ever made. In fact, many armchair critics believe that this film is on par with ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and the 'DOLLARS TRILOGY'.Spaghetti-Western.net says it is "recognized as one of the best westerns ever made" and says, "It’s one of those films that change a moviegoers life forever: once you wandered through the icy and lonely streets of Snow Hill, no western, no film will ever be the same." Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have a critics score, but the audience score is a quite respectable 85%.
In this household we have been very fond of Ennio Morricone´s music for a long time. He was awarded the Polar Music Prize in 2010, by the Royal Swedish Academy, and there was a lot of him on television. It´s staggering how much work he has done!ReplyDelete
i'm familiar with him mostly through his westerns and -to a lesser extent- his horror films. And i loved "the mission". he is busy! and apparently still at it.Delete
