Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! -- Generally considered to be the most violent Western ever made, DJANGO KILL (aka If You Live, Shoot!) is a surreal, gothic vision of indubitable pedigree. Directed by Fellini associate Giulio Questi (director of Death Laid An Egg and assistant director of La Dolce Vita), the film was co-written and edited by Bernardo Bertolucci's regular writing partner and editor Franco Arcali (Last Tango In Paris; 1900; also the co-writer of Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In America and Michelangelo Antonioni's editing collaborator on Zabriskie Point) and stars Tomas Milian (Traffic; The Yards; Amistad), Ray Lovelock (The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue; Fidder On The Roof) and Piero Lulli (My Name Is Nobody).

Now fully restored from the original Italian negative materials DJANGO KILL is being released on DVD by Argent Films in the most complete version of the film available, including, for the first time, two graphically violent scenes never before seen in the UK.

Trivia:
According to the actors and director, the producers decided to release the movie in countries outside Italy as "Django, Kill!" as a way to take advantage of the success of a prior release, Django (1966) starring Franco Nero. In reality, "Django" had nothing to do with "Se sei Vivo Spara."See more »

Strangely compelling, 4 June 2005
Author: (washboard) from United Kingdom

This is really a cult within a cult. The first few scenes are the standard revenge and search for gold spaghetti fare. However, after the bandits entire the strange town, the movie really enters a surreal land. I was quite bemused watching the various sub-plots but it was extremely compelling. It gives the impression of two scriptwriters who love westerns just brainstorming the most outrageous script. Despite its confused feel I give it 10/10 as it has many startling, original and occasionally jaw dropping moments'. Highlights are , 'digging for gold in the bandit', Zorro the 'affable sadist', the black-shirted gay muchachos, the commentary by the parrot and the liquids gold 'House of Wax scene. What the 'traditionalist American Cowboy fans make of the gay muchachos, god only knows. Highly recommended.
