So I finally watched this. I had been eager to see it for two reasons: Giancarlo Santi's previous connection with Sergio Leone; Luis Bacalov's excellent score.
Unfortunately, it seems that Bacalov's score was the only saving grace for me
However, I did watch it as a horrible full-screen version which certainly did not do the film justice. In particular it was one of those full-screen versions where rather than simply cutting the edges off, they sometimes scan across the image to give you the complete picture. It certainly seemed like Santi wanted to use all of the widescreen image available to him which would have been nice to see on a widescreen print. Could someone please confirm that in the extreme closeups, the camera focused on both eyes at the same time and not one eye and then the other as it did in this fullscreen version ???
