Per Qualche Dollaro in Più [For a Few Dollars More] (1965)

4/4

With the second of the Dollars trilogy, Sergio Leone opted to go with one mantra: “bigger, better, badasser”. Everything in For a Few Dollars More is ramped up from the first film; we have not one but two supreme cinematic badasses in the form of Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef; more gunfights; an even more maniacal villain (again played by Gian Maria Volonte); a more epic soundtrack that would make finding your mother’s dildo sound like an adventure; and of course, that unmistakeable cinematic style of Leone’s. Huge closeups, deep focus, dirty faces, wild, dusty landscapes. A masterpiece, and the best of the three Dollars films.

    Lee Van Cleef made that film. The other actors paled in comparison.
    No one can come close to Van Cleef–his face, his voice, his body
    language. The man was a natural; a joy to watch and sexy to boot!
