Overview

Blue Underground has added another feather to their cap with their impressive, slickly-crafted edition of Corri, Uomo, Corri. This video transfer suffers from occasional, minor defects with the negative (usually during night scenes) but otherwise offers a robust, color-rich image that shows off the film's impressive widescreen compositions in high style. Audio options are limited to mono but the disc does offer both English and Italian soundtracks that are sharp and free of distortion (there are also nice, easy-to-read English subtitles for those who choose the Italian language option). Blue Underground adds to the value of this lovely transfer with an impressive and generous set of extras. First up are a pair of documentaries. "Run, Man, Run: 35 Years Of Running" is a new documentary featuring director Sergio Sollima and star Tomas Milian that generates some surprising moments of humor as each pokes fun at the other's artistic style. "Westerns Italian Style" is a vintage late 1960's television documentary that includes some behind the scenes footage from Corri, Uomo, Corri and also highlights other Italian genre filmmakers like Enzo Castellari. Other extras include a detailed pair of text biographies for Sollima and Milian, a trailer, and a generous image gallery. "Easter Egg" fans will also be happy to know that trailers for Blue Underground's other Spaghetti Western title can be found hidden on the Extras menu screen. To sum up, Blue Underground's DVD edition of Corri, Uomo, Corri is a must for spaghetti western fans thanks to its one-two punch of a top-flight transfer and worthwhile extras.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This lesser-known entry in the 'spaghetti western' genre deserves to be better known by fans of the genre. Despite its obscure status, Corri, Uomo, Corri isn't the kind of fly-by-night quickie that many film buffs associate with the genre: in fact, it features impressive production values lavish enough to rival the biggest Sergio Leone films. It also shares Leone's penchant for political themes and epic storytelling, thanks to the ambitious work of writer/director Sergio Sollima: he populates the tale with a colorful array of larger-than-life characters and keeps the plot constantly turning with a combination of plot twists and ever-changing alliances between the characters. The one downside of this approach is that the story is so densely packed that the pace occasionally drags beneath the weight of all its details. That said, Sollima keeps viewers on their toes most of the time by deftly shifting the tone back and forth between comedy and drama. His work is further aided by the impressive performances of the cast: Donal O'Brien cuts a believably imposing figure as a Lee Van Cleef-styled lone wolf, Chelo Alonso handles the role of the hero's long-suffering girlfriend with the right combination of fiery energy and comic timing and Tomas Milian gives a charming, multi-faceted performance as the seemingly hapless but surprsingly resourceful Cuchillo. The film's appeal is sealed by crisp photography and a rousing, Ennio Morricone-styled orchestral score by frequent Morricone arranger Bruno Nicolai. All in all, Corri, Uomo, Corri is a very entertaining film worthy of rediscovery by anyone who enjoys a good spaghetti western.
