You put Castaellari down twice.


(chuck connors brother) #21

Hey thanks, can’t believe I didn’t notice.


(Stanton) #22

Maybe there are really two Enzos, as his films are so different


(scherpschutter) #23

Funny, I have been saying that to myself too


(Phil H) #24

And maybe two Corbuccis as well. It often seems that way.


(Stanton) #25

But Corbucci developed his style in his early spags up to 1968, and then somehow managed it to get rid of this style over the next 5 or 7 years.

Way up, way down, with a few sideways in between.

His first and his last SW are still a negative surprise.


(Dillinger) #26

Corbucci did some really great movies. I don’t know, why he ended up making comedies.
Maybe he just wanted to do entertainment cinema in gernres tht sold well.
When SW comedies came up, he did them and when they dodn’t sell any more, he did other stuff.
In this famous interview made while shooting GS he stated that he hated westerns. Don’t know wether this was true or not, but it would explain a lot.


(chuck connors brother) #27

I didn’t mind White, Yellow & Black, more enjoyable than the 3 Enzo G. Castellari comedies for me.


(Silvanito) #28

Dillinger, you mean the interview from that short film “Westerns Italian style” or what it was called

Weird film I think, seemed to be very tounge-in-cheek to me :smiley:

Boy, that’s Sergioism for the advanced, or maybe from an alternative reality, or maybe completely wrong.
