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

Long on hyperbole, short on historical understanding: my reply to anyone who disagrees with me.

China has clearly peaked as a world power. It will now diminish like the Elves at the end of the Third Age. 87 more words

ഭാവനയിൽ കാണാൻ ശ്രമിക്കുക…
320 ടണ്ണോളം ഭാരമുള്ള ഒരു ആവിക്കപ്പൽ നദിയിൽ നിന്നും ചെളി നിറഞ്ഞ കുന്നിൻ പ്രതലത്തിലൂടെ മറ്റൊരു നദിയിലേക്കെത്തിക്കാൻ ശ്രമിക്കുകയാണ് മൂന്നൂറൊളമാൾക്കാർ.ക്രെയിനുകൾ പോലെയുള്ള യന്ത്രങ്ങളുടെയൊന്നും സഹായമില്ലാതെ കപ്പികളും കയറുകളും മറ്റുമുപയോഗിച്ചാണ് അസംഭവ്യമെന്നു തോന്നിയേക്കാവുന്ന ഈ പ്രവർത്തി അവർ ചെയ്യുന്നത്.



F.W.Murnau’‘s Nosferatu (1922) rightly ranks on nearly every historian’s list of the greatest films to emerge from the silent era (as does his Sunrise). Murnau’s concept of the vampire manages to embrace its absurdities and simultaneously repel us. 625 more words

Jack the Ripper ( Jess Franco,1976)

When not busy treating the very poorest of London’s paupers, Dr. Dennis Orloff (Klaus Kinski) likes to slash a prostitute or two. He’s Jack the Ripper, you see. 410 more words

The Great Silence (1968)

Blood stains the snow in Sergio Corbucci’s The Great Silence, a 1968 western that is as bleak as its uncharacteristic locale. It explores the fragile formation of justice in untamed lands, pitting a mute gunslinger against a squad of callous bounty hunters. 717 more words
