Django

Rated NR 92 minutes 1966

For all its then-shocking brutality and lurid predicaments, Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 spaghetti western — inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained — looks today like more of a Hollywood-type violent oater with an Italian and Spanish cast than a radical rethink of the genre, à la Sergio Leone. Still, the tale of a taciturn loner (Franco Nero) on foot, dragging a coffin into a tough frontier town, is flavorful enough to convince us that its multitude of sequels was no fluke. Especially when we factor in the agreeable hamming of José Bódalo and Eduardo Fajardo as the leaders of rival gangs – Mexican bandits and red-hooded racist marauders, respectively. Costarring Loredana Nusciak as a floozy with a heart of gold. Screenplay by Corbucci, with the help of our other writers. (90 min.)
