Arguably the crowning glory of this 'Dollars' trilogy. Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, Leone's subversive reimagining of the traditional Western tells the tale of the pursuit of a fortune in gold by Eastwood's 'good' (only marginally less ruthless than the other two!), Lee Van Cleef's 'bad', and Eli Wallach's 'ugly'… but the story's only one thing.
Chock-full of astonishing set-pieces, extraordinary imagery, a perfect score from Ennio Morricone and more wit and invention than most could even aspire to, this really is the ultimate 'Spaghetti' Western.
Leone's For a Few Dollars More at Kino Bar, Belmont Filmhouse will be screening this month too.
