Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo

Sergio Leone Italy, 1966

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

It's like Psycho but in reverse. The second half is off the charts amazing and had it been just that, it would have been one of the greatest thing ever. But then I consider the fact that it literally takes 90 minutes before the main macguffin actually gets introduced. No wonder this is Tarantino's favorite film, it's padded worse that any of his own work. Thankfully, there's always ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST.
