sorry for the mistakes!
"If You Live Shoot" a 1967 film of Giulio Questi always played the title of "spaghetti westerns"most violent in history, with a blasé approach, a little 'intellectual and without almost positive characters. Questi put also a little bit of strange as a group of gay cowboys and some minor insanity.
The beginning is very convincing, crazy, open from Tomas Millian who plays the Chicano Hermano prey to nightmares and visions, "resurrected" after summarily executed.
The story starts here and has as its focus the desperate search for gold. A stolen loot in a classical way by a band made up of Americans and Mexicans with the first that reneging on agreements made and kill his old comrades. Then the group arrives in a bigoted and moralist town. All are killed by citizens, the only one who is spared is the chief that die soon overwhelmed by the greed of people who find a gold bullet in one of his wounds.
Protagonists of such desire are
three characters. The priest of the city, whose wife is kept confined
to the house because mad, a rich gentleman accompanied by trustworthy
local gay cowboy, and finally the owner of the saloon. Hermano is the
playmaker of the whole story, often changing his "team" and
witnessing the destruction of moral and physical of the little
ruined by the desire for money.
If Questi doesn't place too much plot in searching of gold. But despite this fraying is in effect a great movie.
apt despite this film hasn't done a brilliant career, stopping at eleven
films directed (a couple for TV), producing, writing else. In addition
to Tomas Millian we note the presence of a young Ray Lovelock, here in his firts play. He is also the only positive character. We see also Piero Lulli a Tuscan actor with a long resume.
