Here’s a very interesting movie from the top 20 list which doesn’t yet have a poll & discussion topic.
I consider this to be an excellent minimalist western. I use the term minimalist because on the surface it looks like a small scale revenge movie, but below the surface there is a lot of depth, much which is revealed during the film with very few words.
This can be contrasted with Paolo Bianchini’s “I Want Him Dead” (aka. “Lo voglio morto”) which is listed as a runner-up to the top 20 [url=http://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/Lo_voglio_morto] I Want Him Dead database linkhttp://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/Une_corde%2C_un_Colt.
“I Want Him Dead” is also a low budget, small scale, revenge film. It might have a little more action than “Cemetery Without Crosses” but we learn a lot less about the characters and their relationships. That’s why I’d call “I Want Him Dead” a simple film and “Cemetery Without Crosses” a minimalist film.
(Please note: just because I used “I Want Him Dead” as a comparisson does not indicate that I am saying it’s a bad movie.)
