I write to tell stories

The Movie – Stagecoach (1939) – John Ford.

A work of art by master John Ford.
And I don’t add anything else.



The Movie – A Fistful of Dynamite – (Giù la testa = Down the head) – by Sergio Leone.

An explosive mixture of irony, friendly deceptions, real life, history, shades of political thoughts and humanity.


The Movie – Once Upon a Time in the West – by Sergio Leone.

The beauty of the West, the progress that comes with the construction of the railway, the little stories and the broken and reconquered dreams of the protagonists, revenge, life, death … in short, a brilliant eye that tells a constantly evolving microworld, under the relentless passage of time, John Ford’s tribute to Monument Valley.
It is known that a Sergio Leone film is still cinematographic poetry.


The Movie – The good, the ugly, the bad – by Sergio Leone.

The sublime beauty of the narrative of the journey of life as a feverish hunt for gold, on an impervious and intricate pathway of obstacles.
The sublime beauty of the narrative of human alliances and individual and popular wars.
The sublime beauty of Sergio Leone’s cinematographic narration of the Western.


The Movie – A Fistful of Dollars Official Trailer – by Sergio Leone.

The shots created by Sergio Leone have the gift of the word uttered in silence.
A sublime, magical director: he knows how to transform every image into living emotion, because he has the extraordinary ability to weave words, images and music together to coordinate everything a perfect dialogue.


The Movie – For a few dollars more (Per qualche dollaro in più) – by Sergio Leone.

The dollar generates stories that are intertwined with revenge and madness.
Sergio Leone’s characters are fabulously real in their rough human weaknesses.


The Movie – Cowboys and Aliens – by Jon Favreau.

Aliens are studying us, they look continuously, even in unimaginable historical ages.
On horseback against a flying object: funny.
Present, past, future, planet earth and other planets, human civilizations and remote places: everything intersects this everyday, when you least expect it.


The Movie – The hateful eight – By Quentin Tarantino.

I remembered a Quentin Tarantino very good at telling stories on the big screen; Yet despite a divine cast in the film The hateful eight, the story, after an hour of the film, it is appensatita from the story itself.
Too much drama in the violence of the narrative, little simplicity in its ruthlessness for the events that take place in 3 hours of film.

I’m not disappointed, I love Quetin Tarantino, but this time, after watching the movie I was puzzled.
