Spaghetti Western month continues with a look at Sergio Corbucci's The Great Silence (1968). The film stars Jean-Louis Trintingant as the titular Silence, a mute gunfighter who shoots the thumbs off his enemies. He's pitted against the appropriately named Loco (Klaus Kinski) in a snow-bound Utah town in one of the most nihilistic films you may enjoy.

Maitland McDonagh and Ivo Ritzer join Mike to discuss the film and, unfortunately, discuss how it still has such a powerful resonance even today.
