New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
Il Grande Silenzio
France, Italy | 1968 | Sergio Corbucci
Sergio Corbucci (1927-1990) was an Italian director of violent and stylish spaghetti westerns, including the original Django (1966), which spawned one official sequel and over 30 unofficial ones. (Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained opens in December.) But tonight we show a different Corbucci classic—one that filmmaker Alex Cox (Repo Man) regards as “the greatest spaghetti western ever made.” The Great Silence stars Klaus Kinski (Aguirre, Fitzcarraldo, Nosferatu the Vampyre) as Loco, a vicious bounty hunter, and Jean-Louis Trintignant (My Night at Maud’s, The Conformist) as Silence, a mute gunslinger who hates bounty hunters. The two lock horns in the snowy mountains of Utah in the late 1800s, with a group of persecuted Mormons in the middle. Music by Ennio Morricone, natch. The Great Silence is unavailable on film in the U.S., so we will show an archival 35mm color print from Europe (English-dubbed version) that is in North America for just a few months.
105 min. Imported 35mm Print. Rare Spaghetti Western Classic!
