Two minutes with no music, not a word spoken, only the sounds of wind, grasshoppers, crows, I’m a sucker for that. And it starts with introducing Specs, the guy who eventually ends up both alive and (probably) collecting the 10.000 $ bounty all alone, I also am a sucker for symmetry. Besides, information; we see Specs coming down the stairs from where Gypsy is held prisoner, at the same time a guy is removing harness from the horses before a “Santa Fe Prison” coach, so a prisoner transport has just arrived and Specs has been waiting for it (or has arrived together with it).
And, it is beautifully shot; Specs waiting by the well, we don’t see Cassidy arriving, we only see it as a shift in Specs’ focus, then Cassidy is there, Specs directing him without speaking, just moving his head and his eyes.
The church ruin scene is important I think, it establishes Gypsy’s obsession with killing El Puro at the very outset. Also a nice reference to FAFDM.
