For a Few Dollars More ★★★★½

I used to think this one was slow, and inferior to A Fistful of Dollars. I must now revise that conclusion; not only is it wonderfully paced, but it's a much more visually dynamic, not to mention complex and interesting, film than Fistful, and possibly even The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (tho that one will always remain my favorite for sheer scope and ambition).
