Description

THE GREAT SILENCE DVD
A film by Sergio Corbucci
50th Anniversary Restoration

Special Film Forum price: $24.00

"ONE OF THE BEST WESTERNS EVER."
–Alex Cox

"[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.

DVD extras include:
-COX ON CORBUCCI, Alex Cox pays tribute to the maestro 
-WESTERN, ITALIAN STYLE, a 1968 documentary 
-Two Alternate Endings
-Original Italian and English language versions
-Ending The Silence, a new essay by film critic Simon Abrams
-Original Theatrical Trailer
