KEOMA FILM COMPLET

But the elliptical editing patterns, especially those preceding the flashback sequences, are peculiar to this film. The relationship between father and son and the question of legitimacy is one that seems to run through a number of Franco Nero westerns – similar themes can be found in Massacre Time and Texas Adios to name but two. I guess there is so much to watch and so much to write about, that the hardest challenge becomes choosing. I guess I’ve been lucky. The first is a very bizarre mystical and supernatural undertone. The screenplay very adroitly concocts a very small and private tale of sibling rivalry, jealousy, and bullying within the broader canvas of the narrative. Cheers Mike, I’m glad you enjoyed it buddy.

The music was composed by the dependable De Angelis brothers, and is in the main very good. Some argue that Keoma was not only the last important spaghetti western, but also one of the best ever made. I’ve actually been dying to see this one, though; hell, I almost rented it the other day! Whilst I find the former possesses a nugget of truth, the latter is a lot harder to substantiate. If there are any other’s you’d like to see, western or otherwise, let me know and then I can keep a list. The background to the seething hatred and resentment between the four is provided by a series of astonishingly well crafted flashbacks. But the elliptical editing patterns, especially those preceding the flashback sequences, are peculiar to this film. Maybe that’s because I haven’t seen the sequels.

If there are any other’s you’d like to see, western or otherwise, let me know complwt then I can keep a list. Keoma is rootless and itinerant, a man desperately needing to find himself, or at the very least perform a duty that will give his life meaning amid the chaos. It would only take one terrible movie to put me off them for several months.

com;let I guess there is so much to jeoma and so much to write about, that the hardest challenge becomes choosing. The Spaghetti Western Database lists a paltry eight productions for and it would be fair to say that Enzo G.

The Celluloid Highway: Keoma ()

In the shape of the heavily pregnant Lisa Olga Karlatos Keoma finds his calling. Keoma overflows with slow motion shootouts, fistfights, and the by now requisite scenes of grisly sadism.

Maybe that’s because I haven’t seen the sequels. One of the major ingredients lacking in previous Castellari westerns is the sort of barnstorming and forceful performance that Franco Nero puts in as the beleaguered half-breed Keoma. It wouldn’t make my top 10 euro-westerns probably not even Top 20but it is one of Van Cleef’s best vehicles. Mike 7 March at If its possible to put this to one side a major challenge because the songs are so damn intrusive then Keoma emerges as a highly fillm, beautifully constructed, and wonderfully entertaining western.

Keoma (1976) – Feature

However one fact that is undeniable is that out of the eight westerns that Castellari directed, Keoma is probably the most accomplished. I’m off to check out the VTSS review The background to the seething hatred and resentment between the four is provided by a series of astonishingly well crafted flashbacks. Shaun [The Celluloid Highway] 10 March at But the elliptical editing patterns, especially those preceding the flashback sequences, are peculiar to this film.

I’m thinking of making reviews of spaghetti westerns a regular feature of the site and then creating a page to catalogue them. I’d like to write about more diverse films outside the boxes of giallo, euro-westerns, British horror etc, and hopefully I can call on you to provide inspiration. And I think I actually might be able to provide that inspiration you speak of. I really enjoyed this review Shaun, particularly interested in your observations of rootlessness and the supernatural which I think can be found in another “Twilight” Spaghetti – The Four of the Apocalypse: From what little I’ve read elsewhere and based in no small part off of what you’ve said of themI hear they ain’t so hot.

Greg – Yes I’d certainly give this one a rent. Make it happen, amigo.

Shaun [The Celluloid Highway] 7 March at Plus, if you write about the same kind of subjects over and over again, even if what you’re writing about is great, it will become dull, thus having a negative impact on your overall “body” of work. I would think that writing about a more diverse group of films is like working out new muscle groups, the more you do a certain exercise, the easier it’ll get.

He and Tomas Milian go head to head. This is alI I ask: Nero is at his charismatic best here and so dominates proceedings that the films director becomes totally overshadowed. The film is on the side of the repressed minorities – Keoma the half-breed, and George Woody Strode the once dignified and proud caretaker of the Shannon family, now reduced to poverty and drunkenness because of the colour of his skin, and William Shannon William Berger the patriarch who is no longer of use because of his advanced years.

I’m actually on a euro western kick myself, though I’ve seen less of the cycle than you have. Stylistically at least co,plet most telling influence on Castellari is Sam Peckinpah. Not only does it state what is patently obvious thus insulting the audience but the vocals are delivered in a fashion which can only be described as abominable. Few spaghetti westerns cultivate the sense of apocalyptic doom that runs throughout Keoma.

Cheers Mike, I’m glad you enjoyed it buddy. Both Lisa and Keoma are outsiders – the former has been tarred with the brush of disease, and the latter has had to endure the prevailing prejudices of the day.

Whilst I find the former possesses a nugget kelma truth, the latter is a lot harder to substantiate. I agree, good buddy: I’ve seen some very good ones in recent weeks Oh, and more Van Cleef, please.

But the decision to have a repetitive song narrate the action is a disastrous misstep.
