For a Few Dollars More

“Wednesday Movie Club” at Window on America center Dnipro, Ukraine had watched a spaghetti western film For a Few Dollars More.
For a Few Dollars More (Italian: Per qualche dollaro in più) is a 1965 Italian-Spanish spaghetti western film directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Gian Maria Volontè. German actor Klaus Kinski also plays a supporting role as a secondary villain. The film was released in the United States in 1967, and is the second part of what is commonly known as the Dollars Trilogy, following A Fistful of Dollars and preceding The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. These three films catapulted Eastwood into stardom.
Film historian Richard Schickel, in his biography of Clint Eastwood, believed that this was the best film in the trilogy, arguing that it was "more elegant and complex than A Fistful of Dollars and more tense and compressed than The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." Director Alex Cox considered the church scene to be "the most horrible deaths" of any Western, describing Volontè's Indio as the "most diabolical Western villain of all time."
WOA’s patrons enjoyed the film and the discussion that followed.
Number of participants – 7 persons.
