For a Few Dollars More (1965)
“For a Few Dollars More is one sequel vastly superior to its antecedent. Leone’s direction is more detailed, his pace more assured, his imagery almost constantly stunning in its size, sweep and singularity. Most importantly, in his second Western endeavor he discovers the past, and begins to realize how a sense of the past, in his characters’ studied ritual-like behavior and his own genre-conscious artistry, geometrically increases the resonance of his and his characters’ actions which, however violent, are always scrupulously considered.”
Richard T. Jameson, Film Comment
I watched this film knowing almost nothing about the plot except “it’s basically tom hardy driving for an hour and a half.” It kinda was that but it was not like anything i was expecting. I fkin loved his performance and the story behind it all. Hope the director makes some more crackin films like this instead of jason statham blah movies.
A 15m(49ft) head was fixed on a torso with cranes and integrated into a floating stage on Lake Constance near Bregenz, Austria. It is part of the stage setting for the opera ‘Andre Chenier’ by Italian composer Umberto Giordano.
