For a Few Dollars More is the second — and most parodic — film in the celebrated “Man With No Name” trilogy of director Sergio Leone and star Clint Eastwood. Here, Eastwood’s mysterious, mythic loner reluctantly joins forces with rival bounty hunter Lee Van Cleef in an effort to capture drug-addled psycho-bandit Gian Maria Volonté.
“Here is a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious.”- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
The latter’s gang of baddies includes Klaus Kinski as a vicious hunchback. Considered by many critics and fans to be the best chapter in the trilogy, the film represented a stylish step forward for Leone, upping the ante on A Fistful of Dollars with sharper writing and more polished production values, but still displaying all the trademark elements — magnificent widescreen compositions, flamboyant camerawork, marvelous Ennio Morricone music, over-the-top violence, scruffy villains, grungy humor, existential emptiness — that would reach their epic culmination in The Good, the Bad and The Ugly. (Dir. by Sergio Leone, 1965, Italy/Spain/West Germany, in English, 132 mins., Rated R)
