Three seminal Cult Spaghetti Westerns in one definitive Collector’s Boxset + Artcards, all restored & first time on UK Blu-ray.

DJANGO

One of the greatest and most influential Spaghetti Westerns ever, Sergio Corbucci’s iconic masterpiece is revered by film critics and fans, none more so than Quentin Tarantino who declares the deep influence that Corbucci had on all his films, as epitomised by his Django Unchained.

Banned for decades, Corbucci’s ground-breaking ultra-violent western stars the legendary Franco Nero as Django, the mysterious lone gunslinger who - dragging a coffin behind him - arrives in a bleak, mud-drenched town where he’ll face two gangs of sadistic evil killers. Presented complete and uncut, from new 4K-restored elements - pristinely faithful to the original film vision.

KEOMA, THE VIOLENT BREED

Acknowledged as the genre swansong, this late Western masterpiece is directed by Enzo G. Castellari whom Tarantino calls maestro (having remade Castellarri’s Inglorious Bastards) and regards as a cinematic icon. Screen-legend Franco Nero reprises his relentless deadly gunslinger persona, now as the eponymous Keoma who, returning to his hometown, finds that it is now ruled by a gang of sadistic killers. Aided by an old friend (a superb Woody Strode), Keoma fights the ruthless bunch to the bitter, last-man-standing, end. This gritty western is presented from 2K-restored vault materials, showcasing its iconic set pieces and its striking action cinematography as never before.

A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL aka QUIEN SABE?

A covert US assassin is sent to kill a General who is one of the leaders of the Mexican Revolution. He infiltrates a gang of guerrillas led by the charismatic El Chuncho (Gian Maria Volonte) with his lieutenants, the crazed priest (Klaus Kinski), and the beautiful Adelita (Martine Beswick). As the rebels go on a rampage stealing weapons, they unwittingly lead the assassin to the General. And the US agent has a bullet for him!

A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL established the politically imbued Zapata-Western genre; it is finally presented in superb high definition finally doing justice to its lavish widescreen cinematography and it is further elevated by the exuberant music from Oscar® Winner Ennio Morricone. Quoting Tarantino, whose encyclopaedic admiration and devotion to spaghetti westerns provides the curating thread of this boxset: “'A Bullet For The General' is one of the greatest Spaghetti Westerns ever made. I just love that movie”

+ DJANGO and DJANGO BONUS FEATURE

Complementing this definitive boxset is a riveting on-screen tribute by Quentin Tarantino enthusing on the deep influence which Sergio Corbucci, the creator of Django, had on his entire career. In the feature-length piece, illustrated with never-seen film-set footage and many film clips, Tarantino explains how - whimsically - in his 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood', the fictional Hollywood cowboy actor played by Leonardo DiCaprio ends up working for the real Sergio Corbucci in Italy.
