Yeah, yeah, yeah, another Sergio Leone, but it's fucking incredible.

And you had me looking up the opening shot to Touch of Evil - quite a tense one-shot!

And Leone + Morricone = Win.

The showdown shootout in Unforgiven was pretty epic, but really the best scene is this:


It's so fucking fantastic how Clint just starts drinking halfway through and you know the whole world is going to hell.

I fucking love the soundtrack here. Absolutely amazing.The Man With the Harmonnica.

EDIT oh what the fuck, is it two ms or two ns in Harmonica?

DOUBLE EDIT - Oh fuck balls, it's neither. 1 m, one n.

EDIT - I mean you put it between Touch of Evil and OUaTitW openings they're pretty much the greatest ever.

 

Thanks for this. Looks great. I have seen it, but so many years ago that I have forgotten the movie. Need to refind it one day.

Yeah, I really need to see Unforgiven again too.

Btw, saw a trailer for a new western starring Clint's son the other day...

Again, I prefer Wyatt Earp but this is pretty good.

Saw Unforgiven agin this year first time in ages, excellent. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence an all time favourite Western of mine.

Last night The Water Diviner directed by Russell Crowe. Post Great War film about a rural father, the water diviner, who returns to Gallipoli in search of the remains of his three sons, good cast and based on a true story.

The Mill & the Cross - Lech Majewski ( 2011)

 

 

Charlotte Rampling in 45 years inspired me to see this film. But it turns out that her part is very small, in all sense of the word.

 

The narrative is not the point in this movie, but the visual scenes are. The movie is a cinematic transformation of Bruegel's picture 'The way to the calvary', and is a harsh picture of the reformation in Flandern in approx 1540.

Many details look right and clothings seem accurate - even though I did not live then,

 

Need not be deep into art history to see that surrealist were inspired but Bruegel - and Bosh.

Rutger Hauer is underrated. Plus, he's seen things you people wouldn't believe...

Well, I would not disagree; how could I? But this movie is just a bit too much, too strange and untraditional for my taste.

The best western song ever. From Rio Bravo of course.

 

Just a couple of lawmen hanging out.

 

 

On Christmas day my wife and I hiked down to the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Red River for some alone fly fishing. The hike out in the snowstorm was a bitch.

 

Tonight we're staying at Dennis Hopper's old place in Taos where he would often be tossed in the jail for drunkenly shooting his pistols off in the square.

 

It's a very western holiday. Yippee ki yay, motherfuckers!
