THE GREAT SILENCE DVD
A film by Sergio Corbucci
50th Anniversary Restoration
Special Film Forum price: $24.00
"ONE OF THE BEST WESTERNS EVER."
"[Corbucci's] West was the most violent, surreal and pitiless landscape of any director in the history of the genre."
–Quentin Tarantino, The New York Times
A singular Spaghetti Western masterwork starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski. Amid mountainous, horse-hip-deep Utah snowdrifts, oppressed settlers hide out from psycho - even by his standards - Klaus Kinski's bounty hunters, while Jean-Louis Trintignant's "Silence," mute thanks to a childhood neckslashing (he took the part because he didn't need to learn lines), signs on to avenge the husband of African American Vonetta McGee (Blacula, Repo Man). With chilling snow-covered locations in the Dolomites and brutally shocking climax.

-WESTERN, ITALIAN STYLE, a 1968 documentary
