Bleeker's DUCK, YOU SUCKER goes to the review for MY DEPRESSION.

With DUCK I most recall those interminable Leone scenes. The flashback where Coburn is at the bar in Ireland and his arrested friend and colleague is brought inside. Get it over with! Cut out all the wailing singing, too.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Gerard. I actually fixed that bad link at about the time you commented, but perhaps you'd need to refresh to get the update. DUCK is a Leone I've managed not to see over the years, but some things could definitely drag a bi in some of the lesser fare from him I've seen.

Elgin Bleecker said...

True, there’s not much flash in Leone’s flashbacks. But if he wants to take his time, I’ll hang in there.

Todd Mason said...

Though the time-jumps/flashbacks in FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE elevate that one for me...that, and the brilliant use of the best Morricone western score I've heard.
