A Fistful of Dollars

A Fistful of Dollars ★★★½

Having already watched & enjoyed the original Yojimbo, had double thoughts on how much il enjoy this. But Sergio Leone’s unofficial adaptation starts a new era of spaghetti western with swagger; set in US/Mexico border with cowboys, Indians & guns is definitely a entertaining watch. Masterful direction, dynamic cinematography, iconic composition, lighting, zooms supported by sharp editing makes it technically solid. Ennio Morricone’s score with strings & harmonica was fantastic. Clint Eastwood as the Yankee with no name was badass with his style, wittiness & cool attitude.

When a man's got money in his pocket, he begins to appreciate peace.

This is the man with no name. Danger fits him like a glove.


In his own way he is perhaps, the most dangerous man who ever lived!
