Crazy Joe becomes a laughable has been
17 January 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

I was most disappointed with this. A spaghetti western with Klaus Kinski in the lead role as a sex starved wheeler dealer, what could go wrong? Actually the story is fine with various parties interested in a large amount of money that suddenly appears on the scene. One of those interested parties is Crazy Joe, who Kinski plays to the hilt, grabbing at every passing women and preparing to bash up against a wall or into a hay loft anyone in possession of a bosom. But, either the director could not control Kinski or did not see the need, for this is a great wasted opportunity to tell a tough tale well. As it is Crazy Joe becomes a laughable has been and the for the rest we have group after group of baddie chase each other to little effect.
