Sergio Corbucci


(Silvanito) #41

Corbucci is alongside Leone the most important director of spaghettiwesterns.


(Lode) #42

Yeah, together with Sollima…The Three Sergios.

I think “Great Silence” is his best film,and the best spaghettiwestern ever made.
and I think that Companeros and Mercenario are the best revolution-films.
the end of hellbenders is genial and django is one of the best films too.
i didnt understood “What am I doing in the middle of a revolution” because of the englisch-synchro.
“Specialists” is a nice western i think.

You could almost say that Corbucci is better than Leone really.

‘Gli Specialisti’ is certainly not among Corbucci’s great ones !!! It’s just slightly above average, not really bad, not really good !!! It’s a kind of hippie-western !!!

Gli Specialisti is one of my favourites, great film :wink:

Only seen TGS, Django and Companeros, all are masterpieces. I’ll say TGS is the best - really shocking. Loco is maybe the most evil charakter of the film history…

Django - the only problem is the incredible ending, but it’s very cool. The coffin is the best ;D

Companeros - almost as good as GBU. Brilliant actors, in their best form, and a very funny story.
Poor falcon… ;D ;D ;D (I’m sure Corbucci had read Boccaccio…)

Hmmm…that is strictly a matter of opinion. For you, it is “certainly not among Corbucci’s great ones”. But, in my opinion, it is. However, that is what makes these forums so interesting and fun—the sharing of opinions and thoughts!

Picking an absolute favorite Corbucci Western is incredibly tough…so much so that I just can’t do it.

I love, equally, DJANGO, THE MERCENARY, and THE GREAT SILENCE!


(Bluntwolf) #49

I stick to my opinion ! What doesn’t mean that I don’t like the movie.


(Chris_Casey) #50

Of course! I understand that. You should always stick to your opinion, amigo.

It's a kind of hippie-western !!!

Bizarre to have 1960s hippies in a film about the wild west, and shoot the whole thing in the European Alps, mmmm me like it ;D

My favorite is Il Grande silenzio (The Great silence).

A question. In which editions is Kinski named Loco? In original version his name is Tigrero.


(caniarrabbiati) #53

I don’t know very well Johnn Hallyday song but I think he is a rock’n’roll singer and not a folk singer.

In English dub he is Loco, I don’t know why. But in Hungarian subtitles he was Tigrero. Funny.

As far as I know his name is Loco in the English and German versions and Tigrero in the original Italian version !!! Don’t know why they changed the names !? Maybe 'cause Loco is close to lunatic or so !?


(caniarrabbiati) #56

Loco in spanish means “crazy”


(flynnparadox) #57

My favorite is Companeros but, honestly, I haven’t yet seen a Corbucci western that I haven’t liked. Mind you, I haven’t seen them all yet. I’m currently losing a bid on Gli Specialisti on ebay at the moment…

I would be surprised if you DON’T find a Corbucci to dislike!


(flynnparadox) #59

Well, of course, it’s possible. As I said, I haven’t seen all of them so who knows? He made quite a few of them so there’s a good chance that there’s going to be something that he made that I might not get behind but I haven’t seen it yet…

He started with Massacre at Grand Canyon on a very low level, worked his way up to 1968, the year where he was at the all time top of his cinematic skills with his masterpieces The Great Silence and The Mercenary, and afterwards made his way down until he reached with his last western The White, the Yellow, the Black a new nadir of his career. But there were even worse comedies to follow.

A tragically great waste of talent.

Francesco Rosi asked him once:
"Don’t you be ashamed to make such bad films?"
And Corbucci answered:
“Yes, I’m ashamed, but when I’m going to my bank, getting my money, I’m no longer ashamed”
