Episode 528: The Great Silence (1968)

Guest Co-Hosts: Maitland McDonagh, Ivo Ritzer

Spaghetti Western month continues with a look at Sergio Corbucci's The Great Silence (1968) which stars Jean-Louis Trintingant as the titular Silence, a mute gunfighter who shoots the thumbs off his enemies. He's pitted against the appropriately named Loco (Klaus Kinski) in a snow-bound Utah town in one of the most nihilistic films you may enjoy.

Maitland McDonagh and Professor Ivo Ritzer join Mike to discuss the film and, unfortunately, discuss how it still has such a powerful resonance even today.
