A Visual Story told Under The Purest Pretexts.
CeasarDaily: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly 1966 Review, This is the third, and seemingly the best, of the purported “spaghetti western” set of three greatest movies that gave western movies its epic name and fame. It is humorous that, at the time of these three Sergio Leone westerns were released they were generally panned by pundits and critics alike as being poor and even ludicrous impersonations of American-made westerns. The films were shot in Italy and Spain which brought about them accepting their peculiar nickname “spaghetti western” which was proposed to degrade them at that point in time.
Some way or another, from over a quarter century or so further since their initial theoretical release, the critics have had a tendency to change their feelings after repeated viewings of this film over the years, Clint Eastwood did reac ultimate super-stardom on the account of these films during that point in time. I trust the three movies were significantly superior to anything the majority of what Hollywood created. Indeed, I believe that The Good The Bad And The Ugly positions itself as among the best westerns ever created even so far as to take into account the superb movies of John Ford, the undisputed expert of that genre of films, and his protege, the exceptional John Wayne.
I don’t have anything standout to say and praise this film. Truth be told, I rank it as one of my most my loved movies ever. I could compose volumes of what is great about this film. Be be as it may, since its qualities have been often rehashed in other movies, it definitely takes the undisputed cult status, I was so invested in the film that I was dispirited to need to come back to reality. The blend of story, cinematography, acting and musical score left me as a viewer wanting more and never did i feel bored by its content! The scene at the climax that appeared to delay in the conclusion of different characters and their fate were important to completely make mind-sets complete and to drive home essential focuses that the viewer would have developed watching 3+ hours of this film. For instance, the opening scene may be viewed as unnecessarily long as Angel Eyes insults a hapless man over a casual meal. In any case, to me, scenes like that are what makes this motion picture awesome! I felt just as I was staring there in my room looking at the table (movie scene) on my screen; I was half enticed to go after a dish and spoon to share of the feast. And at the same time the anticipation was building towards an unavoidable peak.
Another illustration is when Tuco rebuffs Joe by constraining him to stroll through the desert. This is perhaps the main time that one may get to be exhausted with the film. Be that as it may, once more, I think the time for the scene was supported in that we have the capacity to get the full effect of that experience and appreciate the frightful music in the meantime.
It is a clearly an epic with extremely convincing characters and superb settings that attracts the viewer and doesn’t discharge or dismiss any of them until the end credits start to roll. When it’s over, you feel that you’ve been on a long and energizing voyage. Such a voyage requires some serious energy.
In hindsight, if you haven’t seen this film, see it immediately, you will not regret it.
