Spaghetti West, The (2005)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

IFC/Blue Underground produced documentary directed by David Gregory and produced by William Lustig takes a look at the Spaghetti Westerns of Italy. This features interviews with Leone, Eastwood, Franco Nero and various others but I'll get back to them in a second. The documentary, like all of Gregory's work, is wonderfully entertaining and helps newbies such as myself understand these types of films and want to check them out. Having seen hundreds of Italian horror films, the one thing that they struck me as were ripoff of American films yet the directors of these ripoffs would never admit that yet they'd insult the filmmakers they were ripping off. The same here because their attitudes towards Leone, the man these films were ripping, is pretty damn stupid. I haven't seen many of the Italian westerns but the ones I have seen are no where near Leone's talent.
