Film Geeks SD Present: The Great Silence (September 6)

September 6, 2018

In this new restoration of the iconic Spaghetti Western THE GREAT SILENCE, a mute gunslinger must protect innocent refugees from a band of ruthless bounty hunters.

 

On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski Nosferatu, For a Few Dollars More) prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. As the price on each head is collected one-by-one, only a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant The Conformist) stands between the innocent refuges and the greed and corruption that the bounty hunters represent.

 

Critic Quotes:

“The mood is sometimes jaunty, but “The Great Silence” is no joke, and the fatalism of its ending serves as an implicit critique of the sentimental optimism of many Hollywood westerns.” – The New York Times

“Even 50 years later, The Great Silence stands majestically as both a blistering comment about its era and a creatively revisionist genre piece.” – Film Journal International

“Corbucci’s terse, elemental and rugged direction compliment a world shook by corruption and evil, and plagued by treachery that’s so pervasive it enfolds as powerfully through its cold setting as does its even colder characters.” – The Young Folks
