Jim Cummings Selects • Western, Action, Adventure
1966 · Italy · Directed by Sergio Corbucci
In this definitive spaghetti western, Franco Nero ('Keoma', 'The Fifth Cord') gives a career-defining performance as Django, a mysterious loner who arrives at a mud-drenched ghost town on the Mexico-US border, ominously dragging a coffin behind him. After saving imperilled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries... With Django, director Sergio Corbucci ('The Great Silence') upped the ante for sadism and sensationalism in westerns, depicting machine-gun massacres, mud-fighting prostitutes and savage mutilations. A huge hit with international audiences, Django's brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels.
