The director tells how he transposed the violent spaghetti westerns of Sergio Corbucci to the antebellum south
Acclaimed in the United States and due for release here next month, Quentin Tarantino's western Django Unchained is the violent story of a slave on a mission to free his wife. Tarantino's biggest influences for the film, he says, were the spaghetti westerns of the Italian director Sergio Corbucci.
Any of the western directors who had something to say created their own version of the west: Anthony Mann created a west that had room for the characters played by Jimmy Stewart and Gary Cooper; Sam Peckinpah had his own west; so did Sergio Leone. Sergio Corbucci did, too, but his was the most violent, surreal and pitiless landscape of any director in the history of the genre. His characters roam a brutal, sadistic west.
Corbucci's heroes can't really be called heroes. »
