The Good The Bad and The Ugly

Three men standing around, sixty-five shots in two-and-a-half minutes, and one of the most thrilling moments in cinema history. Obviously the hours of story that come before the climax of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly have a lot to do with why we care so much what happens to Blondie (and to Angel Eyes and Tuco), but this new video essay from Max Tohine breaks down the technical side of how Sergio Leone and the film’s editors Eugenio Alabiso and Nino Baragli capitalized fully on the groundwork by delivering the exclamation mark moment that the story needed.

It’s a testament to visually delivering what characters are thinking, particularly in a game theory-laden standoff. It’s also educational from a filmmaking perspective and damned interesting from the fan side of things.
