"The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

In the 60s of the last century, originally American genre Western approached its decline, almost ceased to interest the audience exchanged a focus on very different stories. Hard men in cowboy hats, expertly managed with guns, began to gradually go from screens, but this does not mean that they were destined to the abyss forever out of sight. Too colorful stories of the Wild West were to them could be so easy to get rid of. And if the producers do not want to invest more in western, their Italian colleagues had nothing on American soil against the order to revive the former glory of the genre by his own efforts. One of the brightest representatives of the so-called 'spaghetti western' turned out to be a skilled and really badsome director Sergio Leone and wants to shoot the whole 'Dollar Trilogy' in the best traditions of the genre. Without having the slightest desire to exceed the production budgets and drum on a set of expensive celebrities, Leone went to work in their native lands, periodically going on a business trip to the Spanish coast. Making a bet on the charisma of the little-known TV actor Clint Eastwood, the director entrusted him to lead the party in the inimitable 'A Fistful of Dollars. " Uncompromising and yet emotional film easily won both the Old World and the overseas audience, after which the whole dream of perfection 'Dollar Trilogy' became not just dreams, but quite reasonable given. Not slowing down the process, Leone and Eastwood continues the story of the Lone Gunmen with no name in no less successful 'Few Dollars More', and then it became clear - the third film to be, and in fact that neither is the foreseeable future
Describing impregnated. sweat, blood and gunpowder legends of the Wild West with the required proportion of the authentic flavor, surprisingly accurately express themselves in terms of the Italian Mediterranean impulsivity, Sergio Leone was aware that the final part of the trilogy will be given to him is not easy. According to most fans of the director and his skeptical best stories Leone have already been told the world, and because of the future 'good, bad, evil' should not expect anything substantial. However, the master had about this opinion. Instead of having to constantly look at the short-sighted view environment, he made a surprise move and joined in the third film a western with a classic adventure film, which tells about the search of untold wealth. Always returning to frame Clint Eastwood supported initiatives colleague and good friend, even just an example of the shape of a nameless spirit hot West, played up to the director, even in the most controversial points, which will eventually become not just a classic of the genre, and a model of unbreakable courage in the name of art.
So, the plot of the film takes place during the American Civil war on the territory of the State of New Mexico. At that time, the armies of the two hostile sides are trying to gain an advantage, the Wild West turns his opposition, and it is associated with very tangible kushem gold reserves, which are stashed away in an unknown location Jackson someone (Antonio Casale), or as it has come to represent - 'Bill Carson '. Transformed into a permanent object of persecution, 'Carson' forced is in constant motion, so as the child understands that his gold will be many who want to and as soon as they get the necessary information, it has nesdobrovat. One of the hunters set off in pursuit of the 'Carson' favor maxims (Lee Van Cleef), a heartless villain without putting human life in anything. I found out that the gold 'Carson', is not just a myth but a very real chance to get rich on the rest of his life, a maxim literally over the dead bodies to the desired sneaks. But he certainly did not calculate what its competitors in this case would be at least two hard and skilful marksmen, not intending to pass the stolen treasures of the Confederate Army ...
Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez (Eli Wallach), or simply all Tuco self-fulfilling-taki the trouble, caught in the sights of hunters a bounty for his numerous sins. Maybe it's not as 'bad' as it might seem from the outside, but also to call him her boyfriend too hard. And nesdobrovat our offender, if on his way to appear the legendary Blonde (Clint Eastwood), a man with his own code of justice, which he never breaks. Miraculously appeared at the right time in the right place, the floor legendary shooter saves Tuco from certain destruction, and concludes with him an eccentric union, until a certain time is needed for both of them. Provernuv many scams that nearly killed each other in endless disputes, heroes still find the strength to go for the most gold Confederates, to finally get the jackpot, worth their exorbitant ambitions. Just for starters they have to cope with Sintentsoy frankly 'evil' and unpredictable gentleman-burglar, able to bring the knife over the back of a good friend, not to mention the Blonde and Touquet. And when the hour of the decisive duel, do not even try to predict the outcome. Each of the guys has a character and a cave in the situation is not exactly going.
When 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' was released, critics perceived picture is not the most flattering way, putting its ordinary mediocrity, not going to any comparison with the samples of the genre including the first two films 'Dollar trilogy'. However, nowhere has appeared just in time for the premiere of skepticism rather quickly dispelled and film heritage Leone revealed in all its glory. Directed entered correctly, mix several genres of entertainment together, adding a few boring western additional details. 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' is based on a clear objective, following her to the very end. Several overexposed shootings and verbal skirmishes at this time are real hard diluted intrigue associated with the search for gold. And the interesting thing is that the viewer if he is involved in the search for the Confederate treasure, speaking on the side of one of the favorite characters. And they have a horror Leone as well. Yes, they are far from exemplary heroes of some of them want to personally send to the light, but in this lies their charm. Sintentsa, Blonde and Tuck is incredibly picturesque and sometimes overshadows all the artistic director of tricks. But this is not a bad setting, and one of its greatest possessions.
In the end I want to say that 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' is considered to be a classic 'spaghetti western', to outdo the Americans in their own genre territory. Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood third time worked together on coming out of the dangerous since alterations absolute winners. And I can not wish you anything else, except the very nice view! Still a classic remains so timeless. 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' to the clearest confirmation.
