As far as Quentin Tarantino is concerned it is "the greatest film achievement ever made", the "best directed film of all times" and his favorite film. As far as the whole history of cinema is concerned the impact of "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" on numerous famous directors (the list is huge) and on countless subsequent works cannot be measured in words, but in remarkable images.
For all of us, viewers of many and different generations, the encounter to death of three gunslingers for the coveted trophy of a hidden treasure in the explosive font of the American Civil War remains a filmic experience of multiple pleasures: a hallmark in directing, a magical merge of footage with the (magnificent) music, the unrestrained and genius styling in the service of a playful and full of twists plot, the ecstatic spectacle as a showcase of the human situation, the composer Ennio Morricone as an informal co-director and audio catalyst of this western opera, the familiar rules of a whole film genre that are here anew under work to be skyrocketed, in front of our eyes, in the sphere of the mythical.
