Django

( 1 )

Overview

The original, highly controversial spaghetti Western that spawned an endless slew of imitators and sequels arrives on DVD restored from the original negative thanks to the efforts of Blue Underground. Presented in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image sports bright, vivid colors and even skin tones despite the occasional sign of age that betrays the otherwise flawless remastering. Minor evidence of edge-enhancement keeps the transfer from pristine status, though the occasional glowing edge certainly doesn't ...

Overview

The original, highly controversial spaghetti Western that spawned an endless slew of imitators and sequels arrives on DVD restored from the original negative thanks to the efforts of Blue Underground. Presented in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image sports bright, vivid colors and even skin tones despite the occasional sign of age that betrays the otherwise flawless remastering. Minor evidence of edge-enhancement keeps the transfer from pristine status, though the occasional glowing edge certainly doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the feature presentation. Audio is presented in a selection of either English or Italian Dolby Digital Mono with optional English subtitles. Both mono tracks offer a clean and clear rendering of the soundtrack -- with vocals, music, and the more than occasional gunshot well-mixed throughout. Fans of the film will certainly be pleased to note the inclusion of interviews with Franco Nero and assistant director Ruggero Deodato, in which the two discuss everything from working with director Sergio Corbucci to the controversy surrounding the film and its eventual banning in England. It's also amusing to hear the good-humored Nero recount his initial meeting with producer Dino De Laurentiis and the manner in which his rather long name wash shortened for marquee value. A trailer is in good shape, and an impressive collection of stills and poster art along with bios for Nero and Corbucci round things out nicely. As an added bonus, viewers are also treated to the newly produced short film The Last Pistolero -- a beautifully shot homage to the Italian Western that features music by Ennio Morricone and stars Nero himself as the apocalyptic titular character.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
When the Italian movie studios saw Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars (1965) making dollars by the fistful they began rolling out Spaghetti Westerns by the conestoga load. One of the earliest efforts is still one of the genre's best, Sergio Corbucci's Django, a spare, hard-bitten, mean-spirited shot of pure adrenaline that counts Quentin Tarantino as one of its cult members (he stole the ear-cutting torture scene for Reservoir Dogs). Using Dollars as a template, Django tells its story almost with photographic storyboards, with the initial image of the sequence -- often an uncomfortably tight clasp -- sufficing to advance the story. Corbucci sets up a revenge motif for the ages, with the odds against the snarly hero woefully in the villains' favor, but Django thrives on the laughably unbalanced odds, as the results of the first bullet-strewn battle scene will attest. The finale, a graveyard shootout that has Django fanning his gun with pieces of meat showing through his bloody palms, is unthinkably brutal and nearly pornographic in its violence. Franco Nero, who became a star after this leading role, is an uncanny -- and clearly intentional -- double for Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name, complete with perpetual three-day growth, horse blanket poncho, and round-brimmed hat.
