(mx) wrote: Not believable. Extremely corny.The acting an the part of EVRYONE was horrible. An overall oustandingly bad movie!
(mx) wrote: Structurally, quite a conventional horror, but elevated by its quirky style and performances - maybe a dash of social commentary in there as well at a push.
(ag) wrote: Excellent. Blackly comic, but also a disturbing alcoholic drama. And also a meditation on the nature of men. It's beautifully shot, and Huston manages the material in his own distinctive way. The real star of the show is of course Albert Finney, who staggers drunkenly for 2 hours and makes it all believable. Jackie Bisset and Anthony Andrews provide fine support. Amazing that Huston could produce such a focused and robust piece of work at [i]that[/i] age.

(fr) wrote: The American version of TEPEPA qualifies as utterly egregious. Something is missing from this Guilio Petroni picture, the same fellow who helmed the brilliant Lee Van Cleef oater DEATH RIDES A HORSE. Everything seems truncated, and reportedly the European cut runs about 20 minutes. Mind you, this realistic but adventurous Italian Spaghetti western about the Mexican revolution resembles later westerns, such as "THE MERCENARY, COMPANEROS, A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL, and DUCK, YOU SUCKER. Unfortunately, watching the VHS copy is like looking through a keyhole at life because this was filmed in Techniscope at 2.35.1 so each shot looks spectacular. During the letterboxed opening credits sequence, the visual compositions of THE TEXICAN lenser Francisco Marn are breathtaking, endowing this mangled Spaghetti with great look. Nevertheless, despite its being mutilated, TEPEPA looks like it might be a good movie. The peasant army ambush of the Mexican Army set-piece is nothing short of brilliant. A mustached Orson Welles of CITIZEN KANE makes a genuinely menacing adversary who is proved better off dead than alive. Not surprisingly, Tomas Milian of THE BIG GUNDOWN and THE MERCENARY makes a more charismatic as well as introspective revolutionary leader who sees all of the cruel complexities of life stretch out before him. We watch the bandit change during the trajectory of the action. English doctor Henry Price (John Steiner of VIOLENT ROME is the ultimate villain because he never wavers from his vow to kill the Milian revolutionary figure. The theme that recurs through the Franco Silanos screenplay is revenge. Interestingly, Silanos wrote both THE MERCENARY and A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL so this is familiar turf for him. Everybody seems like they are seeking revenge, from the outsider Dr. Price who renounces his Hippocratic oath as a doctor to murder a sworn enemy to the messianic but rapacious bandit Tepepa who resumes the revolution when he sees how the Army controls the president. Petroni and Solinas dwell on the injustices wrought by the revolution in the on-going clash of the haves and the have-nots. The ending and the unsavory quality of the British doctor and the Mexican revolutionary may alienate some audiences. This is not a cheerful, but rather serious Spaghetti western about the disillusion that came with the end of the revolution and the realization that hundreds of good men had died to put a good man into the presidency who was later manipulated by the evil men. Okay, there is one clever scene straight out of a Tito Capri Spaghetti western where a man in a car drives through an execution and whisks the target away just seconds before the soldiers fire. Although it ostensibly resembles a western, this Spaghetti belongs to the Mexican Revolution subgenre of political Italian westerns. The third act when Tepepa and his revolutionaries ambush the Mexican Army is model of economy and violence. Petroni develops tension and suspense in this scene and stages the ambush with flair, right down to explosives soaring into our faces. Moreover, however, levels of sophistication that flow within the contours of this terrific scene. As the Army approaches the pass, everybody grows tense and suspicious. Suddenly, everything seem tranquil now because the army column has relaxed itself. The Mexican Colonel thinks about this aloud as relief sweeps over the column when several women driving goats approach from the north. The seasoned officer sees danger where his men now see no danger and he orders them to shoot the women tending the flock. The soldiers shoot them women down, but the goats have had time to infiltrate the column and they are wearing sticks of dynamite. BOOM! Ennio Morricone is a musical sensation. Since he worked with Sergio Leone on "Fistful of Dollars," he created the signature musical sound of the Spaghetti western. The soundtracks that he produced often enhanced an inferior western. The distinctive sound of Morricone is something that nobody could or should imitate. Do not misunderstand me, other outstanding composers, such as Gianni Ferroi, Luis Enrquez Bacalov, Riz Ortolani, Angelo Francesco Lavagnino, Nico Fidenco, Francesco De Masi and Benedetto Ghiglia, thrived during the Spaghetti western years. The Ennio Morricone orchestral soundtrack is above his usual towering standards. The piano rift and the marching music is memorable.
