The Professionals (Brooks, 1966)

The Professionals is pretty good fun, but ultimately a minor film from Richard Brooks despite the big names attached.

It starts as a buddy film and becomes nearly a revisionist western, or at least something closer to the tenets of a lot of spaghetti western, which I suppose were largely revisionist to begin with: the Mexicans aren’t as bad as advertised and the bad guys become good. 337 more words

The Great Silence (1968)

From director Sergio Corbucci comes a “spaghetti” western I have long heard of and finally got the chance to see for myself. Generally when I have come across a comment or article about this title it is spoken about with great reverence by the few who have seen it. 732 more words
