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
