Just view or reviewed Tempo di Massacro
I’ve seen a lot SW but nothing compare to some of the guys here so I have a lot to catch up, but I remember renting this one in the 80’s back then for me this was a just another cowboy movie, but the chariot scene could not forget that one.
Fulci was a very good director got two of my favourite Giallos Perversion Story and don’t torture a Duckling. So in terms of Cinema nothing to say, it’s high quality. The plot is weak, we know almost from start what the secret was, but in a SW plot is not of so much importance, if its well framed with the acting, this isn’t Goddart (and even so). The acting is very good Hilton as a similar story to Lou Castel, but does not pretend to be in a Shakespeare play or something like Castel sometimes does, Franco Nero is a pretty decent actor and one of the SW best. Hilton and Nero form a very good pair, and the villain does it tricks in style the scene with the family in the rig it’s pure genius from Fulci. The more serious and sufferer character of Nero combines very extremely well with the one from Hilton more, comic but never losing it’s sense of tragedy. The Pace it’s the correct one for me not to slow, not a succession of actions scenes one after the other and that it’s what I called good direction.
The location was the same of Mannaja, the gorge scene for instance.
Very good SW, with great names on it Fulci Di Leo, Nero and Hilton, entertaining, I wont give it a ten because it was not made in the land blessed by God of Almeria
