Autumnal Spaghettis


(korano) #1

Though they often look out of place, they usually have a good atmosphere and tend to be pretty good films. Beyond the ones I’m about to list, whatothers are Autumnal in both look and/or feel?

Unholy Four
Today We kill, Tomorrow We Die
No Room to Die
Vengeance
And God Said to Cain

Ideas?

Shango is one.

There was some discussion and some films mentioned on a thread simply titled Autumn
http://www.spaghetti-western.net/forum/index.php/topic,845.0.html

I gave Shango a nod there as well.
Ennioo mentions Today it’s Me … Tomorrow it’s You having an autumnal feel, Tom B. mentions 4 Bullets for Joe and Bluntwolf speaks of (the excellent) Cost of Dying.

Also worth mentioning (and that is not on t’other thread) is Squitieri’s
Django sfida Sartana. This looks bleak (in both geography and atmosphere) and you see the wind blowing hats and clothes and it’s muddy in town. This needs a reviewing methinks.
[Sidenote - this has got the same bloody irritating song/tune as Son of Django has, that I’d only jus’ got out of my head from last week :stuck_out_tongue: - slightly different words tho’.]

Yes, I’ve posted there myself. But that thread is more of a thread about autumn in general.


(Reverend Danite) #5

Indeed.
Death Played the Flute has that ‘feel’ as well. Big coats, muddy towns, scrubby vegetation - the last 5 minutes of the film is set to a whistleing ‘flute’ and wind soundtrack - coldly metaphorical!


(Silence) #6

That’s one I’d like to see.


(ENNIOO) #7

Well worth a view Death Played The Flute.

California would count maybe? Along with A Man Called Blade, these late ‘crepuscular’ spaghettis are certainly bleak wet and muddy … an’ jus’ how I like 'em!

I would have to watch these again to be sure, but I am thinking…

Johnny Hamlet
Drummer of Vengeance
El Puro
Quintana
The Specialist
They Call Him Hallelujah
Apache Woman

For sure - set mainly in the woods, but it has that nihalism that somehow feels ‘autumnul’. Cold, brutal and melancholic.


(Phil H) #11

If we are talking wet and muddy then Dirty Outlaws springs to mind.


(Dillinger) #12

Autumnal means to me falling leaves and many scenes in autumnal woods.

Therefore for me the top ones of that category:

Unholy Four
California
Today It’s Me… Tomorrow It’s You!

I agree with these. Johnny Hamlet does have a subtle Autumnal feel.


(Tom B.) #14

Four Bullets for Joe is also one as you can see the colored leaves on the trees.


(chuck connors brother) #15

Theres that scene in Fistful of Dollars where all the leaves are blowing in the wind.


(korano) #16

Wouldn’t call the film Autmnal though.


(korano) #17

Vengeance is pretty autumnal to me. Een though it was shot in Spain, it has an Autumnal feel


(Starblack) #18

Surprised no-one has mentioned Django yet… or maybe that’s heading towards winter…


(Silence) #19

I was about to mention it, but it still has Almería locations. But there’s The Spacialist with Johnny Hallyday’s big black coat. And The Boldest Job In The West has some autumnal feeling in the mud parts. And maybe Django too.


(Stanton) #20

Mud westerns are no autumn westerns for me.

Today It’s Me, Tomorrow It’s You is at the moment the only good autumnal SW which comes to my mind. And it is quite beautiful shot, especially the final in the autumn wood. Ciakmull is a bit similar, but not as beautiful, and not as good. Though also not a bad film.
