Django (1966)

Sergio Corbucci directs Franco Nero, Loredana Nusciak and Ángel Álvarez in this spaghetti western where a drifter drags a coffin into a violent town.

A slightly more gimmicky cash-in on A Fistful of Dollars. If you crunch the numbers down figure by figure it doesn’t really add up. Franco Nero is handsome, almost too pretty, but not a patch on Clint. The score jostles along but lacks Ennio Morricone’s stirring spiritual choruses and demented playfulness. This only occasionally aims for Leone’s innate sense of the epic and mythic. That doesn’t mean Corbucci doesn’t hit the spot. Django can be enjoyable nasty and kinetic at times. A Lust In Mud where the beautiful leads seemingly never consider having sex.
