Giù la testa/A Fistful of Dynamite

(1971, Sergio Leone) During the Mexican Revolution, peón Rod Steiger and self-exiled Irish rebel James Coburn grudgingly team up to knock over that Mesa Verde bank... with dynamite. Uncut version.
Music by Ennio Morricone



“Rapturous and more than slightly insane… Features one of the most glorious and unforgettable scores by Ennio Morricone… Alone, the soundtrack will bring tears to your eyes, and it adds a great deal to Coburn's calculated silences.”
– Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times

“The most wry of the political spaghettis, and wholly wonderful.”
– Time Out (London)

“The most abstract and eccentric of Leone epics.”
– J. Hoberman

“A cornucopia of broad comedy, violent mayhem, naive politics and dizzy melodrama – not to mention something of a masterpiece.”
– New York magazine

“The combination of Leone's obsessive close-ups, Ennio Morricone's melodious music, and the comradely chemistry of Coburn and Steiger ignite an emotional explosion comparable to that of Once Upon a Time in the West.”
– Andrew Sarris

“A marvelous sense of detail and spectacular effects – good fun all the way.”
– Don Druker, Chicago Reader
