[quote=“John Welles, post:18, topic:3152”]Do you think Corbucci is that far above Sollima? They’re both great directors, but it can’t be denied that Corbucci is annoyingly inconsistent and of his 63(!) films, only about 8 are highly regarded, in contrast to Sollima and Leone, where much of their output is considered to be excellent or at least very good.
Indeed, I wrote it so directors like Lucio Fulci, Giulio Questi and Sergio Martino weren’t listed (you can keep Fulci though chuck connors brother!).[/quote]
No, they’re much closer, still I like Corbucci a lot more. I admire Sollima, the way I like Leone (but Leone is much, much better), but I love Corbucci. I love the man and his movies. The only thing I don’t like, are his political views, but he was born and raised in a specific era, within a specific social & political context, so they’re forgivable. And they’re interesting to write about. I would also mention Corbucci among my favoute directors, always. I’d never think of Sollima when drawing such a list.
