Top Films of Sergio Leone by LMdC

Often regarded as one of the most succesful Western director, the ambassador of Spaghetti Westerns Sergio Leone made his mark with a unique storytelling approach and superb color cinematography. His revisionists films characterized by some critics, read here Pauline Kael, as violent even fascists, did not made the majority at the time. Great Western figures like John Wayne, John Ford, and Howard Hawks rejected them with loath and disdain. However, as of today if you ask someone on the street to name a Western he'll more often than not cite one of those titles:

1. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
2. Once Upon A Time In the West (1968)
3. Once Upon A Time In America (1984)
4. For A Few Dollars More (1965)
5. A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
6. Fistful of Dynamite (1971)

I still need to see: The Colossus of Rhodes (1960)


  1. I've seen the top 5 on your list. Other than flipping the top two, my list would match yours. I didn't realize he had made so few films.

    1. Leone has been a producer after his Westerns. And the battle over Once Upon A Time in America almost killed him...
