Product Description

Originally banned in several countries, Sergio Corbucci's groundbreaking bloodfest, DJANGO, is one of the greatest Spaghetti Westerns ever made, and without a doubt the most influential - spawning not only dozens of imitations but a new cinema genre: its everlasting effect seen today as the avowed inspiration behind Tarantino s own DJANGO UNCHAINED tribute. The modern action hero began here, with the legendary Franco Nero (honoured with a cameo accolade in Tarantino s variation) starring as Django: the mysterious lone drifter who, dragging a coffin behind him, arrives in a bleak, mud-drenched town where he ignites a violent feud between a group of Mexican bandidos and an army of hooded Ku Klux Klan-like racist murderers. Presented here, complete and uncut, remastered in HD from the fully restored negative, pristinely faithful to the original look of Corbucci s film, this is the most definitive version of DJANGO. Unequalled. EXTRAS * Conversation with DJANGO star Franco Nero * Alex Cox (maverick filmmaker & presenter of BBC Moviedrome), defines DJANGO. * Theatrical trailers & Argent Trailer Park * Alternative Opening Sequence * Reversible Sleeve with original Poster Artwork * Dual Audio: English plus optional subtitled-Italian * Subtitles for the hard of hearing SDH - [CC] * Remastered in HD from restored negative

....Sergio Corbucci defined the Spaghetti Western with this hugely successful picture.... --Empire

....the movie that saw the Spaghetti Western explode ...stupendous ultraviolence ... makes Tarantino Reservoir Dogs tribute seem demure..... --5/5 Uncut

....Funny, visceral, bloody, no-nonsense entertainment with a touch of class... rates alongside Leone s Dollars Trilogy as one of the daddies of the Spaghetti Western genre... --Time Out

If you were to ask the average member of the movie going public what they associate with the name 'Django' undoubtedly they would go straight for Quentin Tarantino's new hyperbolic western homage Django Unchained and quite rightly so as its the latest big budget all star cast from the infamous director of all things hip and cool. But if you were to go back a good 46 years a little known director Sergio Corbucci was to cast a little known actor Franco Nero in a fairly unassuming low budget Spaghetti Western which unknown to them was to become one of the most influential Italian westerns of its time spawning countless sequels and copycats as well as furthering the careers of its director and star. This movie like Tarantino's new epic was also called Django but was something entirely different to Quentin's new flashy blood splattered opus. A contemporary of the now infamous Dollars trillogy from Sergio Leone Django was a surprisingly different approach to the cut and dry western formula of old and like Leone's 1964 genre kick starter A Fist Full Of Dollars was a reimaging of Kurosawa's Samurai classic Yojimbo. Rough, dirty and uncompromising, Django featured for its time excessive violence, a huge body count and a decidedly downbeat tone. Also unlike Leone's movie or indeed most westerns before it featured an uncharacteristically unlikeable main character who arrives in town unaided by a horse, wearing torn dirty attire and encompassing the atmosphere with a thick air of machismo and bravado, dispatching enemies in an emotionless, selfish and unforgiving way.
Corbucci's approach is also a complete change to the vast majority of westerns of the time. Shot in the far more narrow European aspect ratio of 1.

DJANGO [1966]

Film: I have finally watched this classic for the first time before getting into Tarantino's epic and I confess that liked Django a lot. It is a quite rough film and it features some very exciting scenes (like the "coffin escape") from a cinematic point of view.

Technical Data: Total Size = 21,8GB, Feature Film = 15,9GB (including and English and an Italian DTS-MA-2.0 Mono Track), English subtitles are available for both versions, Running Time = 91:37min (uncut version)

Picture Quality (reviewed on a JVC X30 projector):

- THE GOOD = The picture is very sharp 95% of the running time and the colours appear rich and natural so that the film looks like new at various points. Blacks are solid and compression works fine. We also get the original aspect ratio of 1,66:1. There is a slight layer of grain that looks absolutely satisfying and natural to me preserving a rough and authentic look (never getting disturbing or distracting). Argent Films really seem to have struck this from the original negative.

- THE BAD = While I was watching I was pretty sure that they must have put the film on a 50GB disc. So, the small file size is not reflected in comression artifacts. Nevertheless I think labels should always go for maximum quality when remastering classic titles and advertising their Remastered Version! I also have to mention here that the opening credits come with some scratches and other dirt. Those sequences are not as sharp as the rest. But I can live with that.

- THE UGLY = About 40% of this Django transfer show some strange flickering (anomalies in bright and dark areas). This actually IS distracting sometimes and made me sad when it occured for the first time because the transfer otherwise really matched my expectations.

This film is still as enjoyable now as when it was first released. Hadn't seen it for years and couldn't quite remember the story, but really enjoyed it.

This is the best spaghetti western ever. It is dark and symbolic, with a cast of flawed but compelling characters, who are human in the fact that they are not completely explained and over-analysed. Django is a man, with a dark past who is not completely moral in his actions, yet he is likeable for his strength. This is an immensely watchable film, with a trully moving, action filled climax

After recently watching Sabata and Bullet For The General, this was next on my list of Spaghetti Westerns to watch...and I certainly left the best until last (Dollars Trilogy aside).

This is a great film with some amazing set-pieces (I won't add a spoiler, but the scene when Major Jackson's men come to town to kill him is brilliant. The characters are generally strong, and the plot doesn't pull any punches in terms of violence (but in my opinion never strays into the realms of bad taste).

The only thing wrong with this DVD is not the movie (which I would easily score 8/9 out of 10, but the quality of the transfer, which is pretty bad. Lots of noise, grain and artifacts. This is a shame and while elements of this are perhaps unavoidable with material this old, the recent US release on Blu Ray is (by all accounts) excellent in HD, so why they couldn't have released a better quality DVD I do not know.

For that reason I give this DVD release 7/10
