The Grand Duel - An old ex-sheriff, Clayton (Lee van Cleef), saves young Philip (Alberto Dantice) from a group of bounty killers hired by the Saxon Brothers. The Saxons believe Philip murdered their father, a brutal man known as "The Patriarch". Together, the two make their way to Saxon City, where they can confront the three powerful Saxon brothers, and reveal the surprising truth behind the killing of The Patriarch.
Masterfully directed by Giancarlo Santi (Sergio Leone's assistant director) The Grand Duel's originality lies in it being constructed more like crime thriller rather than a Western. Santi learned well Leone's rhythmic use of pauses and the poetry of silent moments, channeling the masters lyrical and epic style. With a fantastic music score by Luis Bacalov that rivals the best of Morricone's compositions The Grand Duel is one of the greatest examples of the genre ever produced.
Keoma - Returning from the Civil War, half-breed Keoma (Franco Nero) arrives in his home town only to find a ghost town oppressed by a gang of sadistic outlaws, and a deadly plague sweeping through the territory. Reuniting with his former slave George(Woody Strode), Keoma embarks on a brutal battle against the bloodthirsty bandits that count Keoma's three half-brothers amoung its members.
Saturated in a doomed and loomy psychedelic atmosphere Keoma is powerful combination of existential symbolism and unrenting violence. widely considered the masterpiece of director Enzo G. Castellari (Inglorious Bastards, Shark Hunter) Keoma is amoung the greatest "Spaghetti western" ever made.
