Film Review:Django


A 1966 spaghetti western being one of the most violent films of that time. Django is a simple man, living life as a gun runner while dragging his burdens everywhere he goes in a coffin that conceals a machine gun. He rescues a lovely lady named Maria during the beginning sequence also kills over 70 people in the film. He finds vengeance for the murder of his wife and will forever be alone. The soundtrack is amazing and gives the film much power in a vengeful manner. Wish more current soundtracks were more up to par from that time. The film earned a reputation of being one of the most violent films ever made up to that point. One of my favorite westerns that I found inspiring.

Thanks for the recommendation, can't believe I never heard of this one.

I guess the Wild Bunch came only a few years later. For shear raw violence in westerns, it's hard to beat Sam Peckinpah!
