A dark tale with a shot of redemption
4 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like Keoma, this is basically an Italian movie director's ego draped across a threadbare story. Also like Keoma, this brings the particular director's idiom to the fore, with great results. What you have here is your basic Fulci principals based in a Western setting (albeit the usual Italian-skewed version of a Western).

After an opening (and gory) massacre, four folks (a gambler, a hooker, a loony, and a chronic alcoholic) set off for pastures new, bonding as they travel through the endless Western landscape. Things are thrown off-kilter as the have Tomas Milian's Chacco forced upon them, a sinister bandit with designs on young Bonny, the pregnant hooker...

I'll say no more. This is a dark, literally trippy film, like a road movie with no roads. It also cries out Fulci with every shot, what with drug taking, torture, cannibalism and that hazy cinematography that lends a dream like atmosphere to the proceedings. Testi and Milian are top notch actors in any film and here they play things to the full.

Also worth noting, despite all the grimness, is the poignant scene set in a town from a broken men, hiding from the world. They are given a shot of redemption and hope in a scene that actually has some emotional resonance and sheds a little light on an otherwise heavy movie.

Worth tracking down. If you're a Fulci fan, don't dismiss it, this is one of his greatest films.
