Morricone & Hellbenders (Sergio Corbucci, 1967)

while waiting for one of the movies to be screened I was thinking about intro of Venice days and music playing in it. it sounded familiar especially because my friend and I had a movie night of classics from Spaghetti Westerns before I left for Venice. if you watch western movies (especially Spaghetti ones), you are most likely to hear THE musician for sub-genre mentioned - Ennio Morricone. I love his work not only for his legendary contribution to the whole feeling/concept of westerns but also his later works which includes many film scores and works with Orchestras so I think a brilliant choice was made by the artists making this intro. I think that the music was taken from a movie called The Battle of Algiers (La battaglia di Algeri, Gillo Pontecorvo, 1966) which is well known as one of the most powerful ones about war between Algerians against French colonial authorities (it’s really cruel, it doesn’t bring us heroes but the humanity in its darkest forms and I like it because it’s indifferent, you feel like an observer, it doesn’t take sides but it’s just showing us the events following one another) but I won’t write about this one too much because I just wanted to mention it for the music’s sake. today (00:30) I saw Hellbenders (I Crudeli, Sergio Corbucci, 1967) and I enjoyed it so much I will try to describe it without exajerating things. after the civil war an ex-confederate leads his people (family) to New Mexico where he wants to reorganize Confederate troops and revive the Confederation. he has a huge amount of stolen money in a coffin (to finance reorganization), alcoholic woman (which is no good and no good takes you nowhere in westerns), sons (3 different ones) and they are being hunted/they are wanted (just that everyone confronting them doesn’t know that). it did feel like a road movie as I’ve read in one review because the group is travelling towards south/southwest, they are constantly moving from one point to another and we get to know the characters on the road. it is a proper Spaghetti - Morricone sealing it like one with his music and it has loads of guns, shooting, alcohol, moral lessons, death, horses and a good point.

Run 3: Start running and jumping like there's no tomorrow!!! The goal here is to get as far as you can in the weird corridor and avoid falling below in the deep space. Once you reach a certain distance inside the corridor, the level will automatically rise up. There are lots of missing platforms inside, and you should jump over them or walk on the sides to rotate the whole corridor. Collect power cells when you see them and use these items to buy costumes or power-ups.
