Gian Maria is excellent, as always. Not just anyone could've pulled that role off so well.
I think the fact that Sollima only made three spaghettis probably works to his favour. Perhaps had he done seven or so, they wouldn't have all been so good. All of his spaghettis are just so awesome. Then again, had he made around five to seven spaghettis, he might just have been able to solidify himself as the "number two" SW director in consensus.
