#55. Django (1966)


– Director: Sergio Corbucci

– Metascore: 75

– Runtime: 91 minutes

The spaghetti Western set along the U.S.-Mexico border features a former Union soldier, a hunted runaway, a pack of white supremacists, and Mexican revolutionaries in violent confrontation. It was loosely based upon “Yojimbo” by Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, as was “A Fistful of Dollars” by Sergio Leone, and its title refers to guitar great Django Reinhardt.
