    ...came across this spanish/british movie (that is set in revolutionary mexico) from 1971 in the used video store (fell in love with the wonderfully trashy and garish cover art instantly and had to buy it); it stars telly savalas, robert shaw and martin landau; shaw (a mans man the likes of which have disapeared from cinema screens, spielberg casting him in jaws was pure genius) plays a mercenary who takes over a town and then becomes the priest - his performance is a little flat; the standouts are savalas as a charismatic and cruel warlord (fuck that guy looked like pure badass magnificence on screen) and a highly wrought and intense martin landau as a maniacally obsessed mexican federali; unfortunately savalas gets killed off pretty early in the picture but his death is a glorious standout...

    ...the enclosed village is a wonderful set; this movie is definately a wild bunch knock-off; also the conclusion of way of the gun (a highly underrated flick) is similar in feel..
