Growing up in the real Southwest, and I don't mean Texas, (which is kinda mid-western, bein' a Zonie and all), I have ambivalent feelings for Italian Westerns - they had a nice feel for the adult and terrifying absolutism of the desert food chain, human and animal alike, something H'wood was afraid of showing, but they visually looked so much like bad versions their various western fumetti, it was hard for me to suspend my disbelief - especially when a train was involved in the scenes. "Don't look right", is often the first thought in my head when I see these films, but I've learned to view them as a reality onto themselves, a reality that is certainly enjoyable on its own merits. I'll take Django, on this plate, please.
