cait’s review published on Letterboxd:
a couple of years ago i went through a phase of being obsessed with the red dead redemption games... it was literally all i thought about and i loved their aesthetic. so i was pretty disappointed when i began to watch westerns and they just didn't click with me. i found them boring and dull - never capturing the spirit that made me love red dead so much. until now!! a fistful of dollars is so perfectly crafted, so gritty and raw, the set design is impeccable... letterboxd tells me that i've seen thirteen western films, but this feels like my very first one.
