Having just received my collection, I really am enjoying it far more than I thought I would. Considering my exposure to Sartana only came around February earlier this year, I think I’ve taken a huge liking to the character, as well as Gianni Garko, whom at first I had some difficulty imagining him in a Colonel Mortimer-type of a role, which he isn’t, other than donning a similar attire.
Anyways, I think this is a franchise worth celebrating. The sum of money paid for this box set is worth every penny, in my opinion.
You know what keeps fascinating me? For a film series that’s perhaps considered a B-Movie here in Northern America, it exudes cool, originality and creativity a hundred times more than a super A-List movie made on a $300 million budget made today. This comes from someone who has seen his fair share of movies on his journey to becoming a cinephile. I can’t help but love how witty the turnouts are in the Sartana films. Makes you wonder how unoriginal we are starting to become we can’t even try to outdo the charismatic astuteness of a film made five decades ago.
