    For a Few Dollars More

    ★★★★½

    Once again, I am thoroughly impressed by this trilogy. The Eastwood and Van Cleef duo was phenomenal. There’s a seasoned, sharp, yet witty bounty hunter, paired with a young, quiet, archetypical cowboy. The scene where Mortimer patiently walks over to his hat that Monco had shot away from his feet a few times only for him to bend down and it reappear 20 feet behind him with the whiz of a revolver…cinema.

    This was too good.

    “Losing the time” was an obvious indication only ten minutes in, and I knew it wasn’t enough. No, Primal Fear wouldn’t lose it’s off-putting ambiance to the ironic simplicity of pronouncing Dissociative Identity Disorder as the demon of it all—a mere excuse for his culpability. And I am so glad it didn’t.

    B32.156 was perhaps the clearest sign; I never expected it to pertain to the archbishop, and rather I associated it with Aaron himself. But I…
