Navajo Joe and "the other Sergio"
NAVAJO JOE isn't as good as SILENCE, but I love it just the same.

Quentin Tarrentino pays homage to Navajo Joe by using the Morricone theme music in one of the Kill Bill movies. I think. Or was it Inglorious Bastards? Anyway, he uses it in one of his flicks.ReplyDelete
The continuing influence of these gritty flicks sometimes surprises me. For example, a couple of movies I've recently watched: Sukiyaki Western Django, and a Korean movie that has to be seen to be believed: The Good, The Bad, and the Weird.ReplyDelete
