Description

Join us for a special screening of a beautiful restoration of a lost Spaghetti Western masterpiece!

Widely considered to be a masterwork of its genre and the magnum opus of its maker, this subversive, hard-R cult curio from Django director Sergio Corbucci may be the most influential Spaghetti Western you’ve never seen! Shelved in North America for its radical politics and wallop of a downer ending — the deaths of Che Guevara and Malcolm X were cited inspirations — Corbucci’s bleak, wintry shoot-’em-up, set during Utah’s Great Blizzard of 1899, has grown legendary in reputation, with renegades Alex Cox and Quentin Tarantino at the top of its list of admirers. (The latter borrows liberally from it in his own “snow Western,” The Hateful Eight.) Herzog madman Klaus Kinski plays a bloodthirsty bounty hunter who locks horns with a mute gunslinger (Jean-Louis Trintignant, of recent Haneke). Spaghetti maestro Ennio Morricone scores.

“Corbucci’s best and his bleakest ... A classic of transgressive cinema” (Alex Cox).

"Even 50 years later, The Great Silence stands majestically as both a blistering comment about its era and a creatively revisionist genre piece...the restoration is so crisp, the production looks like it was finished yesterday." - Film Journal International
