I really like films such as Bounty Killer and Cemetery Without Crosses, one’s which are unpredictable, and build up interest in the characters. It’s much more emotional when a character I have gotten to know is shot or tormented than seeing lots of generic Mexian soldiers being gunned down or blown up.
I’ve been thinking about Bounty Killer a lot recently. When the bounty hunter does not tell the sherrif who is assembling a posse where to find the bandit he seals his own fate as well as the fate of the people in the very small town. Another way he is very much of an anti-hero. Whereas Milian has a kind of charm in his early scenes in the film. Nice the way the director plays with the expectations of the audience. Plus the tension which builds as one knows a terrible fate awaits the people of the town but not when it will happen or what form it will take.
The other type of SWs that greatly interest me are the ones which are hyper-stylized or stylish. One reason I’m looking forward to seeing that Tinto Brass film. Feel free to throw some recommendations of lesser known films in these two categories my way.
Like most here what I dislike the most are the comedy SWs. PU.
