[quote=“Silvanito, post:1, topic:524”]Which directors have made the best and most important contributions to the SW-genre?
I’m not necessarily talking about individual films more their overall input into this particular genre.
Leone and Corbucci of course, Sollima aswell I think, Baldi in my opinion also.
Who else? Damiano Damiani? He only did two SWs but of of them is A Bullet for the General, the first and one of the best political spaghettis. I think we should count him too!
Opinions? Any more directors need mentioning?[/quote]
Interesting that the director of A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL does not care to have this film considered a western.
He is quoted as stating, Quien Sabe? is not a western. Whenever the critics see a horse, they think they are watching a western…Quien Sabe? is a film about the Mexican Revolution set in the Mexican Revolution, and is clearly a political film and could not be otherwise."
I think this is a more correct description of the film, and of course the director of the film should know as he made the film.
Nobody Is The Greatest I feel is a poor film, overlong and pondering to Hill’s so called comic antics.
