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.
