Quotes

Professor Brett Fletcher: In pain, eh. You must know that torture is important, Wallace, because it lifts the morale of the torturer. Were you not taught that at the university? You were trapped by your higher education. It leaves its own smell on you, I know it too well.
Wallace: I know you do and I can't imagine how a man of your background could.
Professor Brett Fletcher: On the contrary, what is surprising is that a man like me could remain all those years watching life as a spectator before he discovered the force that was in him, but... Do you have...

Dobblegangers, fate, the seductive nature of power & violence.
9 November 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

This is a great western, one of the finest of the spaghetti-genre which has some political overtones. Everyone knows about the Eastwood/Leone movies but this is just the tip of the iceberg, there were hundreds of spaghetti westerns made & this is one of the best. Through a combination of illness & circumstance a mild mannered teacher is introduced to the world of bandit Solomon Beauregard Bennet. Gradually the two men begin to influence each other - for better & for worse - with the teacher becoming more vicious an outlaw than Solomon ever was. Solomon on the other hand begins to see another way of life & the folly of his criminal past.The transformation between the two characters is really interesting & believable, this coupled with some great western scenes, a score by Ennio Morricone, some familiar spaghetti western actors (including the excellent Tomas Milian) & an explosive finale make this a western to rival anything that the more well known Leone offered.
