Cemetery Without Crosses (Robert Hossein, 1969)
« on: 28 Jul 2007 - 22:15 »

Anyone shelling out on this Anolis Ltd. edition "Woodbox"? I've wanted to see this for a while, and probably will go for it. It's always got decent reviews, is it good?

No. I didn't like it at all. It apes THE GREAT SILENCE in tone and execution. There's a discussion on this film going on at sergio leone web board about this release. Here's a link to the page where the new release is discussed. My brief review for it is here. I'm Arizona Colt over there.

But don't take my word for it. You may in fact enjoy the movie. I did not.

I'll take your thoughts on board, I am really tempted though. If it apes the Great Silence that's a plus for me and i'm intrigued to see the Ghost town, plus it seems like a really well packaged release(which I can be a sucker for).

I'll be pretty glum if I don't like it after spending $45 plus postage.  >:(

This is a very good SW IMO, it’s not a top 10 SW, but its close.
The film has some of the best cinematography for any SW and one of the best duel scene scores.

I think it's top ten material (It's on mine).

I enjoy how perverse all the characters are. There is not one redeeming feature in any of them. Even the victimized widow allows her enemy's daughter to be raped by her murdered husbands brothers. She even makes her enemies dig up her husbands corpse to parade him over to another cemetery.


I thought about buying the wooden box set myself.

But I might just stick with my Japanese copy which seems to have a better presentation.

A terribly overrated movie. Maybe that's what ruined it for me. Barely anything happens. The atmosphere is the only going for this picture and that's not enough for me to dole out $50 for this one.

Here are some comparisons between the Japanese and German releases

The German one looks better framed but i think the Japanese one has a nicer picture.

Well, for me this is one of the best spaghettis ever and belongs to my top5. It's kind of art-house western and different so it's not for everyone's taste.

I would like to see the interviews on the german disc but I'm not going to spend that much money to just see them.

Same here.

Thanks for the link to the comparison Tanzi.

The only thing i like about this movie is the musical score and i totally agree that it tries to rip-off the far superior GREAT SILENCE.

I honestly don't see how that is. Just because it has a downer ending?
Then I guess ARRIVA SABATA and HELLBENDERS was trying to rip off TGS as well since they both had downer endings. :-*

The tone is the same. I knew nothing about it going in and it immediately reminded me of GS.

Me too,i haven't watched CWC in a while but as well as tonally there are other similarities such as both movies having vengeful widows and also both contain a soppy stringed instrument love theme.
