The Outlaw Josey Wales 1976 ★★★★

Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy.
-Josey Wales

I think Clint Eastwood manages to merge some elements from the classic western with elements from the spaghetti western to create something original. The story itself plays against formula as the main character is almost seeking out death but life seems to not want to leave him alone. It starts out seemingly like a classic western revenge story, and ends up being almost forced redemption.
