Sergio Leone's first classic spaghetti western masterpiece and the best one of Clint Eastwood! (by ivo-cobra8)
A Fistful of Dollars 1964 in my opinion is the second best one in the spaghetti western series, that is Sergio Leone's first best masterpiece in "Dollars Trilogy", that started all. It is my personal favorite western movie of all time. I love this movie to death and I will always cherish it. A lot of people are going for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West and of course Eastwood's Unforgiven as their best favorite western films. But no one talks about this one: A Fistful of Dollars, which in my opinion is a classic & Sergio Leone's first <more>
masterpiece! This was the third Clint Eastwood's western film that I saw as a kid and I loved it every since. What can I say? Except I love this movie and it is my second favorite Clint Eastwood western movie. This one is in my top 5 Eastwood western films. I just love this movie to death and I love the story and the actors that it is in this film.This movie is shorter for only an hour and 39 minutes long, which is not boring, it is fast paced and it is filled with classic moments. A Fistful of Dollars is a classic and I can always watch and enjoy it, without been bored. Clint Eastwood stars as the greatest Western character of all time, ever created - "The Man With No Name" in the greatest Western of all time. The story is an unofficial reworking of the Akira Kurosawa film Yojimbo from 1961. What I love about this film is Clint Eastwood's character who helps out a young family, who is torn apart from the Rojo's gang, he make sure that the kid goes in to his mom's arms, Eastwood was a heart in this movie. Also you have nice shootouts, Eastwood wears a boiler plate as a bullet proof vest, while Ramón Rojo Gian Maria Volontè fires his Winchester '92 rifle at "The Man With No Name" brilliant! Than "The Man With No Name" kills them all with his colt, excellent! Ramón fires the Mitrailleuse machine gun, killing dozen of Mexican Soldiers, awesome! Gian Maria Volontè as Ramón Rojo was a terrific villain and he did awesome job. The plot start's faster and it is a stone cold classic that started all. Clint Eastwood is the coolest actor in the role playing the famous character of all time, that made him an icon. Every second on screen, he chews up the scenery and even today remains as bad ass as ever. Eastwood's character has been mimicked and copied numerous times over the years and yet he still stands up to modern scrutiny. Despite the character being so cool, there is still humor to be found, like the fact that he ALWAYS has that cigar in his mouth even when he's lying in bed. You also have the classic "Mule" scene which manages to be bad ass and funny at the same time. Sergio Leone directs everything to perfection and considering the film is from 1964, it's extremely well paced with plenty of action. The score was provided by Ennio Morricone, who for some reason is credited as Dan Savio. The music is another element that has been copied by practically every other Western since. It set the standard of what a Western could be and once you watch the film, the tune will go through your head for hours. Not only that this movie is a classic but two movies ripped off the story from this film: Bruce Willis's Last Man Standing 1996 which completely ripped off the story from this film and Sukiyaki Western Django 2007 .This is the beginning of the Man With No Name series. The visuals are beautiful, the character of the Man With No Name menacing and mysterious, the score is brilliant and the action is a blast. The greatest "spaghetti" western ever. The one that launched a thousand copycat versions, even the wonderful score by Ennio Morricone. A Fistful of Dollars is a legendary, with bullets, as loud as the explosions and close ups extreme. The plot is simple though not as much as the sequel, A Few Dollars More but that is what enables Sergio to weave a masterpiece. Iconic score. A Fistful of Dollars gets a perfect 10 by me and remains my all time best favorite Eastwood Western movie in the series that I absolutely love to death and I love Clint Eastwood's character. It's a genre that doesn't get enough love and it really should as it deals with all the familiar elements of action films, like this one is.
One of the top 10 greatest films of all time.. here's why (by A_Different_Drummer)
I just watched for the 11th or 12th time. I lost count. Of course in the Old West even the Italian version you can never lose count of how many bullets left in your gun. That's a fatal error.Why this is one of the greatest films of all time 1. It is an adrenalin rush to watch. I saw it first run in a theatre. At the 16:00 mark after the first shootout, a guy two rows in front stood up and yelled an expletive. He was that excited.2. Launched Sergio Leone, one of the greatest and least appreciated directors of all time. See my IMDb review of ONCE UPON A TIME IN America.3. Launched Ennio <more>
Morricone, another top man in his field. I actually purchased the soundtrack to this film, never did that more than three times in my life.4. It rebooted Eastwoods career WHICH was OVER. He took the cash and forgot the movie, even forgot the title, until he heard he was the #1 box office star in Europe. He was stunned.5. It created a new genre of movies, something few films can claim. There were several dozen "italian westerns" before the trend expired.6. Possibly the best adaptation of a Japanese film Yojimbo into one of the best western scripts of all times. Like an MMA match, the story just builds and builds and the music carries you along.7. Launched the anti-hero into the mainstream, something not even the French could do and Lord knows they tried.8. Introduced Gian Maria Volontè one of the best villains of all time.9. Created a trope that you can never forget once you have seen the movie. Like the Rope a Dope. Only with bullets.10. Created a signature "glance" for Eastwood which he used in later films.11. Showed the world it was possible to have a hit film even with major dubbing.12. One of the greatest "comebacks" for a hero ever, after a beating, a trope everyone used after that. Look at the Mel Gibson films.Did I mention this is one of the greatest films of all time?
An excellent western film. Clint Eastwood is AWESOME. (by Heisenberg-G1)
Being a remake of the 1961 Japanese film, Yojimbo; this is regarded to be the weakest of the bunch in the trilogy. But it is still regarded as a classic. And it was the start of something new and creative. Spaghetti Westerns. A Fistful of Dollars starts off with a a gunslinger arriving at a small Mexican border town named San Miguel. We are introduced to the Man With No Name. The main character in the film. The Man With No Name, or in the film, refereed to as Joe, is quickly introduced to mafioso style families who are laying claim to the town. One is the family of town sheriff John Baxter <more>
who are trying to protect the citizens from the cruel and gruesome brutality of the Rojo Brothers, the other family. Consisting of Don Miguel Esteban, and Ramon the main antagonist of the film brilliantly played by Gian Maria Volontè, who would go on to play another villain in For a Few Dollars More.The Man with No Name is very clever and calm. He is also a man you do not want to mess with. He is played by Clint Eastwood. Clint is fantastic as usual, and creates the coolest bad ass ever here. And one of the most memorable characters in the history of cinema. Clint went on to play the same role, The Man with No Name, in the two following prequels of the film. Gian Maria Volontè displays a brilliant villain, Ramon. He could not have been any better. And he really lets his character come to life.While this may not be considered Leone's best achievement but you cannot deny the impact this film brought to the world of westerns and the art of cinema.This film also marks the first brilliant soundtrack provided by the brilliant and talented Ennio Morricone who would go on to provide the brilliant soundtracks for the next two films in the trilogy and the new Quentin Tarantino film Inglourious Basterds. I am a sucker for westerns, more so spaghetti westerns, not only because of the story but because of the atmosphere and cinematography. The way that Leone captures all of the surroundings is just amazing.And we are also introduced to Leone's signature style in the film. Close ups. This film certainly revolutionized the genre of westerns and oh man they were plenty more alike to follow. The ending scene is so full of tension and suspense that you will be cringing on the edge of your seat. This is also the same for For A Few Dollars More and The Good The Bad and The Ugly. Full of suspense, humor, tension, violence, and anger this film is and always will be timeless. It can be enjoyed and be fun to watch any day. This is without a doubt overlooked and underrated not receiving as much praise and recognition as it should. But all I can do is give you the same advice I was given. And that advice is what I hope you will also follow. I took the advice to go and see the film and the outcome was overwhelming.
ALthough in many respects this film pales in comparison with Leone's later films, it is itself a brilliant cinematic achievement. In part, this is because its failings primarily appear to be due to constraints of budget very small and highly uncertain and time more than anything else. Even to the extent that the skills of Leone, Morricone, and others hadn't fully flowered yet, this film is incredible at how brilliantly it is handled for what is really a first-time go. Leone had worked on, and even directed, films before, but this is his first real foray in his own direction, and <more>
into a genre that he revolutionised and with which he became forever synonymous. Who can imagine westerns without at least thinking of Leone's films, while who can think of Leone without thinking of westerns even though his last, and arguably greatest, film was a sort of gangster film ? Similarly, one should not criticize this film for being based on Yojimbo, for that film itself was based on an American story while A Fistful of Dollars really is very different in many key respects, not least of all Leone's visual style or his own sense of irony and symbolism derived from Italian precedents and Hollywood westerns.We also see the nascent Leone visual style here, with the close-up style and contrast of close-ups and long shots appearing. This alone sets it apart from previous films, westerns and non-westerns alike, and still provides for great visual treats that one can appreciate today.This film also ushered in Leone's obsession with details, hard faces, grungy people, etc., that also revolutionsed the genre.This films also marks the first brilliant score of Ennio Morricone. It is here that he introduced the lonely whistling, guitar music, chorus, and unusual combinations and styles that developed into the music that has become in the U.S. synonymous with westerns and duels in the same way that Leone's visuals and themes have. Despite its minor flaws, this is still a great film that is not only revolutionary but still great and fun to watch even today. Like Leone's other films, it is timeless. One must also admit that it is amazing that in the U.S. an Italian film maker basing his films partly in Italian culture and an Italian composer could come to so define and be synonymous with this genre that Americans had considered so uniquely American, and highlight its underlying universality. That alone reveals the greatness of the films, of which this is the first.
'A Fistful of Dollars' is the first from Sergio Leone's trilogy about "The Man with No Name". The other two movies are 'For a Few Dollars More' and the famous 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'. Although 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' is considered the best this one comes pretty close. It is a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 'Yojimbo' and it comes also pretty close to that movie. It was also the first real Spaghetti Western.Clint Eastwood is "The Man with No Name" who comes to a small town where two families run the place. Both <more>
families hate each other and he thinks he can make a lot of money with playing both parties against each other. This is basically the main story. There are some sub-plots, one of them involves Marisol Marianne Koch who is taken by a leader of one of the families. Her husband and child still live in the town.For me it was not the story that made this movie interesting. It was the whole atmosphere. I like all Leone's westerns for that reason. Of course some are better than others, but they are never boring. The way we see Eastwood kill four man early in the movie is simply spectacular.This no 'Once Upon a Time in the West' or even 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' but we have the same atmosphere, the same kind of score by Ennio Morricone and a Clint Eastwood at the beginning of a great career.
'The Man With No Name' rides into town for the first time... (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
Sergio Leone shared a rebellious desire to tumble the old values and present the audience with a new, more mystifying piece of storytelling... The violence, the speed of action in his film announced a totally new European style...Leone placed the poncho on Eastwood's shoulders to give his character a veil of mystery... The cigar acted as a sort of pendant to those ice-cold eyes... He creates a quite unique character, with no name, no horse and no money, a cynical bounty hunter whose impassivity is his main attraction, an ultra-cool gunslinger who leaves us impressed by his exceptionally <more>
swift draw... He is a mysterious 'gunman with green eyes' who comes from nowhere and returns there, a cult hero set against a dry and dead landscape entering a noisy violent world where evil competes with evil..."A Fistful of Dollars" is distinguished by Sergio Leone's visual gift, and convincing fashion in handling violence, rape and torture... He presents his sadistic killers, invariably unshaven, sweating and bleeding in frequent big close-ups... Both the real and the unreal invincibility of his 'Stranger' are never better illustrated than in the final scene when the trembling Ramon fills the gunfighter's heart with bullets...Leone's very dark brand of humor stands out when Eastwood walks past a coffin-maker: "Gets three coffins ready" he orders... The town heavies make fun of him, asking where his old mule is... "You see, my mule don't like people laughing, gets the crazy idea you're laughing at him!" All four heavies get their just punishment for such mockery and as Eastwood returns past the old man, he corrects his miscalculations: "My mistake, four coffins." The film is strong on passionate emotions, and bloody violence... This aspect is completely foreign to the American tradition based on John Ford concepts of honor, bravery and romantic adventure... Sergio Leone's film deeply influenced the future of the Western in general and the Italian 'spaghetti' Western in particular...
A classic. The first, or one of the first, films to introduce the concept of the Western antihero. Sergio Leone pioneered a lot of things here. The brightness, the oppressive sunlight. The ugly brutality of Western gunfights, that had always been cleaned up in Hollywood. I understand that Leone's occasional framing of the shooter and his victims in the same shot was not allowed at the time in American films. I thought, upon seeing this film years ago, that some characters Eastwood spoke in English, and other characters in Italian. Who knows, maybe some spoke Spanish or German. Must make <more>
for an interesting acting job. I rarely notice a movie's music, but the original score by Ennio Morricone was so fitting. Probably the best match of film and music up to that time, and only bested by Hugh Montenegro ? in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly". A very good movie. Grade: A
"Yojimbo" Revisited - The Beginning of the Spaghetti Westerns (by claudio_carvalho)
A drifter gunman Clint Eastwood arrives in the Mexican village of San Miguel in the border of United States of America, and befriends the owner of the local bar Silvanito Jose Calvo . The stranger discovers that the town is dominated by two gangster lords: John Baxter W. Lukschy and the cruel Ramón Rojo Gian Maria Volontè a.k.a. John Wells . When the stranger kills four men of the Baxter's gang, he is hired by Ramón's brother Esteban Rojo S. Rupp to join their gang. However, the stranger plots a scheme working for both sides and playing one side against the <more>
other."Per un Pugno di Dollari" is a milestone in the history of the cinema, since the genre of "Spaghetti Westerns" didn't really exist previous to this movie. Sergio Leone used the storyline of Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo", replacing the samurai without a master "ronin" Sanjuro Kuwabatake performed by Toshirô Mifune and the scenario of the rural Japanese town in Nineteenth Century by the stranger without a name Clint Eastwood and a small Mexican town in the border of the Wild and Far West. The result is a magnificent and remarkable movie, and beginning of the trilogy of Clint Eastwood's character Joe, who proves that "a man with a rifle beats a man with .45", completed by "Per Qualche Dollaro in Più" and "Il Buono, il Brutto, il Cattivo", . My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Por um Punhado de Dólares" "For a Fistful of Dollars"
In the middle '20's, Dashiell Hammett best known as author of "The Maltese Falcon" wrote'Red Harvest", in which a nameless private eye also alcoholic, a status shared by many Hammett heroes is hired to clean up a small town kept in fear by two warring boot-leg mobs.I believe "Red Harvest" did make it to film in the '30's, but I haven't been able to track that down and never saw it.In 1961, Akira Kurosawa brought a version of the story to the screen in "Yojimbo', with Toshiro Mifune playing the nameless hero. Kurosawa and Mifune add <more>
an earthiness to the hero lacking in Hammett's tension filled original: Mifune's samurai is always scratching, eating, cringing or sneering. Perhaps this is to make up for the subtraction of the element of alcoholism that was the chief weakness of Hammett's anti-hero. But it also has the effect of rounding out the character so that he becomes human to us in a way Hammett's anti-hero is not.In 1965, an Italian director, not yet credited with completed film, Sergio Leone, was hired to do a typical "spaghetti western" of the era. Instead, he remade 'Yojimbo" without giving credit to the original, by the way as "A Fistful of Dollars". The failure to credit "Yojimbo" as inspiration raises some ethical questions - but it must be noted that Kurosawa himself made no reference to Hammett in the credits to "Yojimbo"! In any event, "A Fistful. ... " is a young director's film, full of flaws; but it has an undeniable black-humor and is crisply directed, with some striking visuals that seem to come out of nowhere, given the genre context in which the film is made. The nameless hero is played with a particular coolness by Clint Eastwood, which undercuts the earthiness- the scratching and scruffiness - that remains from the Mifune version - Eastwood's anti-hero rarely eats, and never cringes or sneers. The pivotal torture scene from Yojimbo remains, given a peculiar brutality by the addition of a pan of the expressionless faces of the onlooking outlaws. This scene - predicated on Eastwood's unwillingness to give up the young family he has saved, is finally what makes him a hero. Is it enough? Well. if not, he's certainly one stinky of a masochist, taking a beating like that for nothing. In a world as corrupt as that in which our hero finds himself, it is the smaller sacrifices that determine the ethics of a man. Remaining silent is sometimes the boldest statement to make; it was good enough for Kurosawa and Leone; it's good enough for me.e.j. winner
