Overview

One of countless Westerns that came in the wake of Sergio Corbucci's wildly successful Django, Django, Kill...If You Live, Shoot! arrives on DVD from Blue Underground with some exciting extras. The feature attraction is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, offering bright, well-balanced, and vivid colors. The print is clean and free of any debris or artifacting. Audio is presented in either English or Italian Dolby Digital mono with optional English subtitles. With this release Blue Underground has strived to assemble the most complete version of the film as possible, and due to the fact that some scenes were never dubbed into English, the film occasionally defaults to the Italian soundtrack while displaying English subtitles. Interviews with stars Tomas Milian and Ray Lovelock discuss everything from working with director Giulio Questi to the fact that Milian initially wanted no part of the film (he thought the director was too philosophical to craft a successful Western), with Questi himself reminiscing about how his previous work in documentaries helped to shape his feature career. A gallery of poster and still art showcases posters from around the world and numerous production stills, as well as a well-preserved, eye-popping theatrical trailer that is a sight to behold. Crafty viewers who are handy with a remote will also find some amusing extras, including an additional interview and trailers for other Westerns released by Blue Underground.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Despite its setting and plot trappings, Django, Kill! If You Live, Shoot! is not the average 'spaghetti western.' There are occasional outbursts of brutal action but director/co-writer Giulio Questi is much more interested in using the film's revenge and search-for-gold plot elements as a vehicle to create a eccentric, often darkly humorous commentary the greed and hypocrisy that often lie beneath the veneer of a 'civilized' society. Thus, the usual spaghetti western thrills take a backseat to surreal flights of fancy and the approach to plotting and performance is handled in an arch, highly stylized manner that has more in common with David Lynch than it does with Sergio Leone. As a result, Django, Kill! If You Live, Shoot! is likely to confound viewers looking for straightforward action but fans of art-house weirdness will find plenty to enjoy in this film: Franco Arcalli's editing makes dazzling use of rapid-cut montages in a way that is a good 15 years ahead of its time and Questi creates a variety of unforgettably bizarre setpieces from start to finish, the most memorable being a scene where wealth-hungry townspeople rip into a dying man after discovering the bullets riddling his body are made of gold. Django, Kill! If You Live, Shoot! further benefits from above-average acting, with Tomas Milian creating a compelling presence as the film's vengeful hero and Ray Lovelock providing a memorably expressive turn in a challenging, mostly silent role as the town's one innocent character. In the end, Django, Kill! If You Live, Shoot!s is a bit too eccentric and brutal to be recommended to the casual viewer but offers an unforgettable experience for cult movie fans with a taste for the eccentric.
