The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    **** out of ****

     “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is a classic tale of violence, greed, and deception; told through the eyes of director-co-writer Sergio Leone and through the performances of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. What a spectacular film it is. It wasn’t well-received, particularly at its time, but it has since gone on to be regarded as a classic. Now, thanks to the film, Spaghetti Westerns are respected yet again; and that is how things shall stay for some time now. But as far as those films go, I’d have to say that this is the best I’ve seen. It’s a grand, sweeping epic built around spectacle, characters, story; all the key ingredients you need for a movie as long, visually stunning, and historically important as this one.
