    Death Rides a Horse

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Part two of Morricone celebration night.

    Not quite on the level of the best 3 Sergios spaghettis, but not far off. Takes a weird turn from revenge western into Magnificent Seven territory in the third act but it manages to make it work. Van Cleef is fantastic as usual, and of course, the score is a classic, as you'd expect.

    Had to break with my general aversion to rewatching films to see my favourite one for the first time in years, in honour of the Maestro.

    Thank you for this amazing soundtrack and the many others I got to enjoy after watching GBU inspired me to explore so much more of world cinema back when I was first getting interested in movies.

    This was almost certainly not my kind of film anyway, and from reading other reviews on here it seems like some level of familiarity with the source material is required in order to be able to follow the plot, but when the version being shown by MUBI in their Straub/Huillet retrospective is missing subtitles for around a third of the dialogue (and rising to over half in the final 15 minutes) understanding the film escalates to an impossible task.

    This film dissed Chelsea so I refuse to rate it objectively.

    Although it actually is a pretty poor documentary anyway.
