Vamos a matar, compañeros!

As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I watch ALOT of spaghetti westerns at the moment. Italy was a goldmine in the 60's and 70's and I can't go on without showing you the trailer for the one I watched a few days ago: "Vamos a matar, compañeros" (1970) by Sergie Corbucci.
This must be the ultimate spaghetti western, it got it all!

A crazy swede (!) played by Franco Nero ( the manliest man who's appeard on the silver screen, I say) who travels around and sells weapon and dynamite to the highest bidder, the mexcian revolution, blowing up a bridge, gun fights, duels, beautiful women, hangings, unlikely friendships, Jack Palance as a marijuana-crazed psychopat who's got a artificial hand and a pet falk, cunning plans, hijacking a train, escapes - the list could go on forever.
And an unforgetable score by Ennio Morricone. Just listen to the song in the trailer!

One more thing another Corbucci that is one of my favorites is Il Grande Silenzio (The Great Silence) starring Jean-Louis Trintignant(oh baby!) & crazy monkey Klaus Kinski. Incredibly bleak and stylish- this trailer doesn't do it justice. You must check it out.
The trailer is here:
