Box set proves best Western
CULT SPAGHETTI WESTERNS (Argent Films, cert 15, £24.99)
NO Clint Eastwood, but here are three of the finest examples of the shoot-em-up cowboy films amazingly produced by Italians in the 1960s.
Django, which is recognised as one of the best in the genre, stars Franco Nero as the mys- terious lone gunfighter who arrives in a bleak and muddy town only to find himself caught in the middle of a violent feud between two vicious rival gangs. Nero also stars in Keoma, directed by Enzo G Castellari. (who made the original Inglori- ous Bastards) Meanwhile A Bullet For The General has been rated alongside the best of Sergio Leone’s work with Eastwood and is a violent and rousing film about the Mexican Revolution. There are lots of extras for fans too.
