Leone's liberal use of widescreen shots in conjunction with extreme close-ups gives the movie an epic quality that is matched in scope by a skeletal narrative structure that breathes with a poker-faced mood, tone, and personality.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A unique vision of the American West as place of desolation and ruin on a truly epic scale.

The defining spaghetti western pits a charismatic Clint Eastwood against partner and nemesis Eli Wallach and perpetual enemy Lee Van Cleef.

Sergio Leone's dramatic directing style is powerful and well delivered, even by today's standards.

The fellas in Leone's films are seething cesspools of hatred and frustration whose only satisfaction-however fleeting-is found in pursuit and acquisition of money

The sublime film music, now-iconic situations (like the climactic ghost town shootout), and sure visual style add up to a pitch-perfect genre pic that ongoingly influences generations of hip filmmakers. [Blu-ray]

Leone created a phenomenal film but also created some of the most memorable shots in film history. The extreme close-ups are still impressive to this day.

This is London

It still looks a treat and a bold and largely successful attempt to recast the traditions of the genre in a new, sometimes critical, almost operatic way.

The visuals are eye-popping, the score (by Ennio Morricone) magnificent, the Civil War set-pieces both stunning and haunting. If you're going to end a trilogy, this is the way to do it.

The new length gives a clearer view of the civil war context: a nightmare of panic as the south flees before the Union's advance.

Re-released movies are forever claiming to be iconic, but few can hold the title as easily as Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Sergio Leone's masterpiece is as enduring as the scorched desert in which it is filmed. Also receives props for most effective use of whistling ever.

Amid the endless homages and the sheer adoration meted out to Sergio Leone's ambitious, pricier finale to his Spaghetti Western trilogy, it's easy to forget just how damn good the film is.

Leone also endows the film with a clever visual style. His sense of scale is especially inspired.

Though ordained from the beginning, the three-way showdown that climaxes the film is tense and thoroughly astonishing.

Sergio Leone's grandiose 1966 western epic is nothing less than a masterclass in movie storytelling, a dynamic testament to the sheer, invigorating uniqueness of cinema.
