Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


With exciting but somewhat absurd theme music and oil painting watercolor like opening animation, Sergio Leone’s classic masterpiece of nearly three hours kicked off. Sure enough, it is the consistent style of western films. The rhythm is slow and the narrative is detailed. When watching the film, there is a feeling like watching a story. The character description of the three main characters, good man, evil man and ugly man, is extremely exquisite. The final duel of the three took place in an open cemetery. The rotating lens, the close-up of the look of the three people and the hand extending to the holster and the repeated theme music pushed the film to the climax, and also made the audience have various assumptions about what will happen after the shooting. The good man, the evil man and the ugly man are three cowboys with almost the same shooting skills but different ways of behavior and tactics. Who will fall and who will survive?

According to Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory, it is obvious that in this western society with no law, only guns, no order and only power, the cowboy who can survive at last must be the one who can best adapt to the living environment. The reason why a good man is a good man is that he will not do anything to achieve his goal, and will not indiscriminately kill innocent people in order to destroy the enemy. The villain is a villain because he can never consider other people’s feelings and even life in order to get benefits. For him, killing people and stealing goods is as natural as eating and drinking water. Ugly people, on the other hand, are well versed in the two sides. In order to achieve their goals, they can pretend to be honest and honest. They even bear humiliation and bear heavy burdens, live on their own, rely on others, and then turn around when the time is ripe. So, it seems that the ugly man has more clever means and less limitations. He should be the only winner in this who can survive game.

However, the first mock exam is not always true. The real situation reappearance can not be completely divorced from the limitations of the director’s imagination and the audience’s expectation of the “good man’s victory”. Good people don’t die. Even if good people die in the end, they must die bravely with bad people. This is the outcome loved by everyone and the film business owner.

So Clint Eastwood is always the luckiest one. Although he was caught by ugly people and tortured in the desert, he mastered the most important information through the last words of the treasure collector: under which tomb is the treasure. The relationship between the abused and the sadist between the good man and the ugly man has also changed 180 degrees. The ugly man understands that the good man is the only source of information for him to get the treasure, and he has to try his best to get a good man. Eastwood also knows that this information is his gold medal. As long as he doesn’t disclose the information, he can live forever unless the other party doesn’t want to get the treasure. The bad guys obtained the information held by the ugly people through more violent means. He knew that torturing the good people would never reveal the information, so he simply let him go.

Back to the final duel, who will fall? Although good people keep the stone with the name of the treasure cemetery in the center of the site, as bad people and ugly people, how sure do they believe that good people write the truth? From the perspective of these two, if the good man’s writing is not true, and the good man is shot dead, how can we find the treasure? So if you kill the other party and don’t kill the good people, when the other party falls, the good people will certainly take the opportunity to shoot themselves, so the good people will finally profit. What shall I do? It was indeed an unfair duel. In fact, when they hesitated, a gun rang out, the bad man fell down, and a burst of smoke came from the muzzle of the good man’s gun. At this time, the ugly man suddenly reacted. Although he might not get the treasure if he killed the good man, if he didn’t kill the good man, he would be the next target to be killed, so he pulled the trigger at the good man. The good man didn’t fall because he had already unloaded all the bullets from the ugly man’s gun. This is obviously an unfair duel between bad people and ugly people. Good people can succeed only when they hesitate to shoot who. Absolute information advantage and precise psychological analysis are the guarantee for good people to win.

For the audience, the reason why the film is classic is precisely because of its wonderful, logical and black humor. A good man is bound to win in the end, but Eastwood is not Bruce Willis who can’t die in the fierce fight, or Superman wearing underwear, or Altman who flashes the light every time he is dying and makes a big move to solve the other party. He is a man. The true and expressive plot has achieved the peak of the heroic image of Eastwood in the West.

The historical theme of the civil war was beautifully integrated into the film. I have great respect for the dead union general who bravely charged with his soldiers for a meaningless bridge, but was wounded and satisfied with the sound of bombing the bridge. He knew that only by bombing the bridge could he really free everyone from this meaningless massacre, but he always bravely defended his honor as a soldier. “I’ve never seen so many people die meaninglessly.” Eastwood told the director his understanding of war. If the villain who died under Eastwood’s gun died for that large amount of property, what are these anonymous people who died on the battlefield for? In the Cold War era when McCarthyism prevailed in 1966, this anti war plot and black humorous ridicule of war were great enough. War is meaningless, whether it is gray or blue, whether it is so-called justice or so-called injustice. For politicians, a war comes down with only one more body; For soldiers, a war is enough for all.

The film satirizes the tragic war between the north and the south for a meaningless bridge, but describes the process of three cowboys, or bandits, seizing treasures with a serious attitude. Although they are called good people, bad people and ugly people respectively, their purposes are exactly the same. Although the good man didn’t kill the ugly man in the end, his trick of winning was not elegant. Although the bad guys kill innocent people indiscriminately, they are still honest and trustworthy. While ugly people are driven by the wind, they are forced by life. His missionary brother may never understand why his brother wants to be a bandit who does all kinds of evil, but he himself knows the significance of his role. Perhaps he is the same as an unconscious soldier who only obeys orders in the war, but his commander is not a person, but the whole western society. Maybe a good man will only survive in western movies and novels. He belongs to Sergio Leone and does not belong to this society incompatible with romanticism.
