The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

4 Apr


This review opens with cinematographer Tonino Delli Colli assembling a stunning wide-angle shot of this blog while composer Ennio Morricone fills the moment of silence with his amazing, original score. I stare at the keyboard with an itchy finger waiting to press return. Sergio Leone’s signature western, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly continues to be an international sensation forty-five years later. The story about three distinctly different gunslingers with a history with one another search for a shipment of confederate gold. Although, Eastwood and Van Cleef get all the glory for being the ultra-cool cowboys, it is Eli Wallach that pushes the action forward and keeps the movie moving towards its big payday. In this film, Leone is able to put everything together in the right spots and make the best of film of the Dollars trilogy, as well as the most iconic western of all time. This critic presses publish and rides off into the sunset.

    The Good, Bad, and the Ugly has to be one of my favorite Clint “Squints” westerns
