THE GREAT SILENCE
Il grande silenzio
(1968, Sergio Corbucci) Amid mountainous Utah snowdrifts, oppressed Mormons hide out from psycho—even by his standards—Klaus Kinski’s bounty hunters, while mute Jean-Louis Trintignant’s Silence signs on to avenge African-American Vonetta McGee’s husband. With chilling Dolomites locations.
♫ Music by Ennio Morricone
"Corbucci's masterpiece. Contains one of Morricone's loveliest scores."
– Justin Stewart, The L Magazine
"Remarkable! Revels in haunted, unsettling instrumentations and spontaneous quick zooms that anticipate a generation of slasher films."
- Steve Dollar, The Wall Street Journal
"One of the finest westerns ever."
– Alex Cox, The New York Times
