(1968) Lang Jeffries, Fernando Sancho, Femi Benussi, Carlos Gaddi. A unique Euro-western with the hero as an astrologist who wears a leopard suit. Sure, theres a revenge theme, but overall this is a different brand of spaghetti. Its very moody and feels like a Euro-horror film in spots. Aka Requeim for a Gringo Color, 16mm Written by
Previous user comments posted for this movie have been mostly positive, which confuses me because I found the movie a real chore to sit through
and I normally love spaghetti westerns! True, the movie has a nice
musical score, there's a wet t-shirt sequence, and the director occasionally manages to compose the stuff on the screen to produce striking images. But this good stuff in no way manages to compensate for the bad stuff. The characters are bad - the bad guys don't really ooze evil, and the good guy (who wears a ridiculous-looking leopard skin poncho) only makes a limited number of appearances. Most of the movie is composed of the characters endlessly talking, resulting in little action. And the little action there is is not only spoiled by dubbed gunshots that sound extraordinarily wimpy, but passionless direction. The end results are like eating cold spaghetti with no sauce.
