The Great Silence

Rating: 
9/10

What at first glance seems like a rather derivative spaghetti western (except for the unusual snowy setting), reveals itself to be a bleak and nihilistic vision of the Old West. This movie takes no prisoners. Except for the scenes in which characters are put in prison. This film has one of Morricone's best scores and you'll be bobbing your head and humming along while your favorite characters get gunned down in cold blood.
