One of the best films from Italian genre master Sergio Sollima (The Big Gundown), Faccia a Faccia [Face to Face] is a gangbusting western saga and a gripping parable of the rise of fascism. Upstanding history professor Brad Fletcher (played by the incomparable Gian Maria Volonte) is forced into retirement by his poor health and moves west for the warmer climate. Almost as soon as he arrives, however, he is taken hostage by famed bandit Solomon Bennett (the great Tomas Milian) in an accidental confrontation, and by necessity is forced to take up with his cohorts. But the learned man’s growing identification with the gang encourages him to stage a takeover from Bennett, and a new crueller system of leadership is put into place. Produced by Sergio Leone’s longtime partner Alberto Grimaldi, featuring stunning Techniscope cinematography, and a pounding score by il maestro Ennio Morricone, this classic spaghetti western is presented in its uncut original Italian version for the first time in the UK, including a collector’s booklet and a video interview with director Sergio Sollima.
