Nothing personal I was replying to Manco and he did infer that TGS is "beyond criticism"
and referred to As-s holes in a way I disliked.
Other posters on this thread have praised MAN CALLED SLEDGE 1970 and given
it even higher scores than I did.
I have never said that TGS is NOT a good, well made, pleasing SW but I have every
right to point out clear FACTS like the cast being SECOND RATE and Trintignant’s dramas.
Kinski is good in many SWs/Giallos/Horror but he is NOT a leading man but supporting.
Also you Alko should NOT assume that everyone has TGS in their top 20 or top 5
because I HAVE NOT and prefer the other Sergio Corbucci SWs like MERCENARIO 1968
You see I like to judge a SW or a FILM on facts, merits, analysis and also important
To JUDGE a SW / Film properly you MUST BE ABLE to UNDERSTAND the words.
If you like me speak “perfect” English and Italian then a SW or Film must be in either.
It is NOT fair or correct to review and criticize a SW of Film if you did NOT understand
the words completely and absorbed everything that each character said and felt.
Just watching the pictures and understanding nothing of the words/feelings is BAD.
No wonder we have been getting some very INCORRECT reviews and allegations that
ANTHONY STEFFEN (He is an all time SW great) was somehow “wooden” ??? ???
Look to DeNiro, Streep, Wooden Allen, Bogart, Pacino for any WOODEN specimens !! :’(
