Superb film, but not one I could watch again and again in the way that I could with so many other movies. Bit bleak. Not that I don't like a bit of bleak, of course. In a gritty, realistic human drama or similar. But I likes my Spags to be a wee bit more "Get the gold, overcome insurmountable odds with some unreasonable speed and accuracy with a six-shooter, lose the gold, kill everybody else with any gatling guns you may have buried hither and yon, get the gold back". You know? Something to cheer at. Not much to cheer as the credits roll on The Great Silence. Nossir.
