A simple question, a complex answer

Which is your favourite Sergio Leone film?

And why?

The Good, The Band and The Ugly, the perfect wrap-up to the Dollars series, awesome cast and sensational cinematography and music.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly for me too - it's probably my favourite film of all time.

I think it's because it has everything - action, pathos, comedy - wrapped in a truly beautiful package. It's a spectacular looking and sounding film, and it has perhaps the most entertaining screen performance I've ever seen in Eli Wallach's Tuco. I know that Once Upon a Time in the West has more to say, that it's cleverer and bolder, but I just don't love it like I love GBU.

I also wanted to say that I've been reading your blog for a long time and really enjoy it. Thanks!
