Summary

A stylized but shockingly violent and gruesome spaghetti western that turned Sergio Leone’s Man Without a Name trilogy on its head and brought the spirit of sadism and torture into play. Director Sergio Corbucci has done as much as he can to bring the genre down to earth and give the action an earthy, subtle feel that makes it all the more fresh.

Plot:

A lone gunslinger spreading his casket finds himself in a rural town overrun by Mexican gangs and bandits, and gets caught in the middle of their war with each other.

Review:

A muddy wasteland stretches before Django (Franco Nero), a scruffy gunslinger who carries an unusual piece of luggage: a filthy coffin that has done its service. On a whim, he saves a prostitute (Loredana Nuschak) from death (or worse) when she is beaten and humiliated by a gang of men in the suburbs of the city with a red scarf. Django quickly destroys her with his revolver and takes the woman to the next town, where she is greeted by prostitutes in a saloon. While Django is resting and enjoying his meal, the local warlord, a white thug who likes to kill Mexicans in cold blood, comes through the door with five of his men wearing red scarves and they start fighting Django because they are convinced that he killed their brothers. Django, of course, quickly takes them out, allowing the warlord to escape and round up as many men as possible, leading to a bloodbath thanks to the Gatling rifle Django carries in his chest. Later Django joins the other side: a gang of Mexican bandits who steal a gold reserve from the army. Django then decides to steal the gold for himself, but that won’t be easy and his mistakes will have consequences.

A stylized but shockingly violent and gruesome spaghetti western that turned Sergio Leone’s Man Without a Name trilogy on its head and brought the spirit of sadism and torture into play. Director Sergio Corbucci has done as much as he can to bring the genre down to earth and give the action an earthy, subtle feel that makes it all the more fresh. Nero created the perfect anti-hero, and that film spawned a franchise that had at least 30 sequels and spin-offs, but Nero didn’t return to the series until many years later. It’s as iconic a spaghetti western as the three Clint Eastwood films that Leone directed, but it’s harder and meaner than those films.

Arrow Video’s presentation of Django was eventually released after some complications with legal issues, but I’m happy to report that their 4K scan offers the film in perfect condition, which is pretty glorious to behold. Arrow is offering the film in a steelbook Blu-ray edition and a multi-disc 4K Blu-ray edition, which includes numerous bonus features as well as a Texas Adios bonus tape with Nero. From what I understand, it’s hot and very limited, so grab it while you can.
