Sergio Corbucci directs Jean-Louis Trintignant, Klaus Kinski and Vonetta McGee in this spaghetti western where a silent avenger hunts down some nasty bounty hunters who are killing off outlaws before an amnesty ends their cruel profession.
Bleak, snowy western. Full of risky surprises. The cast is pretty striking, though only Frank Wolff’s jovial sheriff really gets to do any acting. Possibly the best of its cycle not directed by Leone. An obvious influence on Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. Was banned in the UK and buried in the US for over twenty years.
