Rating: 9/10 -- Corbucci's terse, elemental and rugged direction compliment a world shook by corruption and evil, and plagued by treachery so pervasive it enfolds as powerfully through its cold setting as does its even colder characters. Full Review

Rating: A- -- It's in the same pasta bowl as the Sergio Leone films, only with even more red sauce. Full Review

Make no mistake, the ugliness of violence and greed comes through a dark, savage story with an incredibly brutal conclusion. Full Review

Nothing works out the way these people, not to mention audiences who love classic Hollywood westerns, expect. Not even close. Full Review

Corbucci constantly subverts the generic tropes that he dabbled with two years earlier in Django, that blood-soaked and oft-imitated riff on A Fistful of Dollars. Full Review

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. Full Review

Product Description:

A group of greedy bounty hunters led by the brutal Loco (Klaus Kinski) are in pursuit of a band of outlaws who have escaped and are hiding out in the hills of the snowy Utah frontier. After an innocent man is killed with no remorse, a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is called upon by the man's wife to seek revenge. Standing between the innocents and the corrupted bounty hunters, Silence decides to mete out his own brand of justice, even though the lines between the bad and the good have already been blurred. Famed Italian director Serio Corbucci (DJANGO) helmed this bleak, stylish, and violent spaghetti western, which features a score from Ennio Morricone.
