an art film made in the Spaghetti Western system. not a great film, but great in terms of its experimental use of cinematography, editing, and sound design within a formal narrative structure. MATALO is wrongly put along side Jadorowsky's El Topo which is conscious & political in stepping out side of the genre.. MATALO is more along the lines of Tinto Brass' Deadly Sweet with its playful cinematic vocabulary.
Unusual, surreal spaghetti western with some memorable scenes. But those seeking a great surreal spaghetti western from the period should see Giulio Questi's Django Kill, for me a far superior film (and naturally Jodorowskys EL Topo)
