One of the best and darkest westerns of all time. No other spaghetti western utilized Klaus Kinski's screen presence better (this and Zulawski's IMPORTANT THING IS TO LOVE are probably Kinski's best non-Herzog films). Trintignant is a revelation. Who knew after seeing THE CONFORMIST or any of his french films that he would be such a good "strong, silent type" western protagonist. and I love the ending.
