Film Series: A Fistful of Dynamite

1971. Italy. Dir: Sergio Leone. With James Coburn, Rod Steiger. 157 min.

“Fistful” is an understatement – Leone packed all the explosives he could beg, borrow, and steal into his directorial arrivaderci to Spaghetti Westerns. A fugitive IRA bomber and a greedy bandito bring swagger and firepower to La Revolución, igniting an incendiary buddy picture set to the lush strains of Morricone.
