I didn’t mind it at all - a bit of quirky flashback stuff that points to a lost relationship. Which is afterall a spaghetti cliche, and here it is, freshly squeezed into an otherwise distinctly average second half of the film.
On my way to hunt out 4 Came to kill Sartana in search of those hairy armpits I faltered at my newish and improved version of this film. So, not remembering much of it (including Brother CCB’s shot) - except for a treasure-hunty bit, I decided a rewatch was in order.
Now I’m a big fan of Vari’s films so far - fond of Deguello and others of course - but having both Django the Last Killer and A Hole in the Forehead residing in my Top 20 size=8pt[/size].
20 minutes in and I’m thrilled by the improved quality of the print, the great dialogue, the cool setting for the meal, and the colourful mix of characters, a tiniest smidge of nudity and yes! … hairy armpits!! … and I’m now wondering where all this magnificence could go wrong?
Well - Stanton’s database entry, and others, have summed it up really…
So, an enjoyable start that showed some potential for it to be a righteous goodie, but unfortunately it didn’t sustain, and fell off into an overambitious mish-mash.
But - certain elements will get it half marks - and then rounded up for the furry pits…
So - 1 nipple, 2 pits, 3 stars.
