I did appreciate the red lighting on the faces and such… I also liked the idea of that camera being directly on top of scenes (and below like the scorpion ring of fire scene) … definitely good stuff. The film almost reminded me of Django Kill, but I hate Tomas Milian as an actor so Yankee definitely beats it.
Haha, as far as the main guy’s hat being too big… I didn’t notice, I’ll have to check it out sometime. Man, if only I could remember what movie I saw recently with the biggest hat I’ve ever seen…
[quote=“korano, post:29, topic:779”]Here’s some things I notice about the film:
It seemed to me, that the 60’s obviously had a big influence on this film’s look and style. Sort of a retro look. In other words, I wouldn’t be surprised if I travelled back into the 60’s and saw some of those guys dancing in a club.
The film’s style is very suave and clean without any real dirt in it. But it’s a good thing here. I have made the claim before that this is the most stylistic Spaghetti there is! Not that I’ve seen but there is. The camera use is great and creates some kind of psuedo surrelistic feel. While were are still very much still grounded in reality. Brass does some very very cool things here that make the film unique in its use of color to portray feeling or atmosphere. When the woman goes to kiss Leroy, the light goes red. At least to us as I don’t think in the west everytime someone got kissed, the lights go red. But it is very cool here. And after the massacre, when the sherif and many others are dead, the sky is red with the blood of the murdered innocents.
I really wish the producers would have let Brass finish editing this film the way he wanted. It would have been very cool.[/quote]
