Per un pugno di dollari

Sergio Leone Spain, 1964

El Biffo's rating of the film A Fistful of Dollars

My re-watch of this was back-to-back with a rewatch of Yojimbo, both for Family Movie Day. Without saying a word to prejudice him, I asked my nineteen-year-old what he thought and the verdict was unanimous: it pales in comparison to the visual grandeur, the mood and everything else about Yojimbo. 3.5*
