The part where Cuchillo is hiding in the cane field and watches the men pass him. There’s no dialogue but it cuts out a big chunk of the music and some nice cinematography.
I’ve got Once upon a time in the Italian West. Great book.

I just finished Frankel’s “The Searchers”. I think I actually preferred his book “High Noon” (I also prefer the film itself too), but this one still comes very heartily recommended. His ability to combine real historical events/periods with film criticism is great.

A translation of this one…?
Yes, most likely.
My first book about the Sergiot
What was the stand out book release this year? Still looking for someone who can contribute a recommendation to the list:
