  1. I went through a huge spaghetti western phase in my teens and The Great Silence was a DVD I got for my birthday once upon a time. Imagine watching that movie on your birthday. I think it is one of the bleakest, most upsetting films I’ve ever seen. I thought about it for weeks afterwards. I definitely think it does deserve #1 on this list, just ahead of Django. If it was ever remade I reckon the Coen Brothers would do a good job of it. To me The Great Silence looks and feels like a Coen movie, albeit 30 or 40 years ahead of its time.

    Keep up the good work with the updates, it must be quite a task!

  2. I went through a spaghetti western phase as well. Great minds think aline 🙂 Not only that, but I got The Great Silence as a birthday present too earlier in the decade 🙂 No doubt, it is a very pessimistic western. That ending must have surprised everybody when they watched it for the first time. Alex Cox is a huge fan of this film too (he is also a fan of Corbucci). Speaking of which, The Great Silence and Django were both shown on Moviedrome back in the day. As for that last sentence in the first paragraph about this feeling “like a Coen Brothers movie, albeit 30 or 40 years ahead of its time”, I completely agree with your quote. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
