The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Everybody knows this film as a Clint Eastwood classic, one of Sergio Leone's iconic Spaghetti Westerns, a story of greed, double and triple crossing. What you don't know about this film is that Eastwood (The Man with No Name AKA Blondie) gets just about every scene stolen from him by Eli Wallach who plays the deranged bandit Tuco.
Tuco is incredible, every scene he's in is amazing. Whether he's playing stooge to Blondie's Catch an Outlaw, Free an Outlaw routine or dealing with a hostile while taking a bubble bath, he's a treat to watch.
Rounding out the cast is the downright despicable Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef) who makes a departure from the relatively benign bounty hunter in For a Few Dollars More into being a full on psychopath. I would make him one of my top three movie villains of all times.
The intrigue involved between these three characters builds over nearly three hours of treasure hunting action and climaxes in a tense and thrilling Mexican standoff. If you haven't seen this film, stop what you're doing right now and get it watched!
By the way, 10/10.
