Crop And Save
Wow! This film has all that you've come to expect from a Euro Crime flick. Violent murders, long shoot-outs with machine guns, a hot-tempered police officer who loathes criminals, downright evil henchmen and much, much more. Franco Nero has lately become one of my favorite actors, and not without a reason; in this film he proves what a talent he really had. This might just be Enzo G. Castellari's best crime film. It's very nicely directed, with some very interesting camera work and the music by the De Angelis brothers is the best and most suitable score I've heard them deliver to this point. It perfectly fits in with the various situations that Nero's character finds himself in.
The only copy I could get a hold of was a region 0 release from 23rd Century (?). It does not have the best audio or video quality, but it's watchable. Availiable on Ebay as "The Marseilles Connection".
If you're a fan of either Nero or Castellari, or of course, both, this is a film you have to see!
Navajo Joe (1966)
Moving (?) Spaghetti Western by "the other Sergio"
I don't know what it was about this movie that really got to me, but somehow I was moved by this film. I know that it sounds strange to be moved by s spag Western, but this one really left an impression. The ending was both beautiful and mystical. Maybe it was because the main character was a Native American, and Reynolds portrayed Joe in a cool way. Joe was tough and smart, and I really liked the part where he talks about who is truly an American. Always liked that kind of stuff. If you are a (spaghetti) Western fan, and especially a Corbucci fan, you've got to see this. A forgotten classic in my opinion. Plus, it's fun to see young Reynolds as a Native American seeking rightful revenge. Enjoy!
