Episode 530: Sabata (1969)

Episode 530: Sabata (1969) Guest Co-Hosts: Heather Drain. Mark Begley

Spaghetti Western month continues with a look at the Sabata films -- it's something of a trilogy, but not really. And some might say that there are seven films in the series… but, really, there’re just two. The original film, Sabata (1969), was written and directed by Gianfranco Parolini and stars Lee Van Cleef as the titular gunfighter who’s no stranger to gadgets.

Mark Begley and Heather Drain join Mike to discuss the three official Sabata films and four of the knock-offs which have little to nothing to do with the titular gunfighter.

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.
