The Good, The Bad, and The Good God That's a Long Cut.

This afternoon I broke out my newer Blu-Ray of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (1966). I didn't realize this disc had all the international scenes left out of the old DVD release making it a three hour movie. The outtake scenes mostly don't add much to the movie and even take away some of the reveals of the Civil War and Angel Eyes' position.

I'm not sure I would know what this movie was about based on this poster.

Today, this was a good movie to act as a soundtrack for the apartment as we got some work done, but it also found a way to steal our focus for moments to distract from the rainy day. This is considered one of the all-time great movies and the only thing going against it is the incredible length of it. Eli Wallach is the hero for me in this movie, I like to focus on him more than Clint Eastwood's Blondie because his personality and his face that the camera loves steal the whole show.

Letterboxd review.
