Sentenza di Morte (1968, ITA) C-90m. SCOPE *** D: Mario Lafranchi. Starring Robin Clarke, Richard Conte, Enrico Maria Salerno, Adolfo Celi, Tomas Milian, Eleonora Brown, Luciano Rossi. Unusual spaghetti western about baby-faced Clarke, who is out to kill 4 colorful villains, who caused the death of his brother. Simple revenge formula is overcome by stylish direction, which celebrates the archetypes of the spaghetti western, and brilliant score by Gianni Ferrio, who rivals Morricone in his use of unusual instruments. For buffs. Might have been an inspiration for Tarantino's KILL BILL movies. English title: DEATH SENTENCE.
