Yesterday, for the first time, I saw “The good, the bad and the ugly”… And I loved it!
I’m not a huge fan of western movie, but I loved the atmosphere, the characters and the dialogues so much!
So here is a little animation of Angel Eyes or “the bad”

thoughts on the themes of morality and “…

thoughts on the themes of morality and “good vs bad” in the storyline of gbu

In canon? Honestly even though I resent the German title “Two Glorious Scoundrels” because it excludes Angel Eyes, my favourite, I do like it because it doesn’t delineate the “intended” morals as explicitly as the original title does. 

There’s a lot of moral dubiousness to all three of the trio….I stand behind Angel Eyes as The Worst of the three (and proud)….but the other two are certainly villainous protagonists. The movie is a lot more about unfettered greed and pettiness than it is about good vs. evil. 

I’ve had some good talks with @stephantom about whether or not there could be a moral angle to what Blondie does (even though it’s scammery) from the standpoint of allowing people to live who he deems worthy, or that have been dealt a rough hand. Since Blondie is kinda barely a character in that, more of the idea of a character, I could get behind that as a headcanon for why he’s more ‘good’. 

I also can see why Tuco is the person most people get behind as deserving to get away with it– mainly because he’s the only character with a real arc in GBU. Because of the way things are stylistic/oversimplified in GBU I find the attempts to make him sympathetic irritating rather than endearing, but that’s just because from a modern lens, the trope of “villain with a sad backstory” is very overdone, whereas you don’t see as much of “villain who is the villainiest villain to villain” anymore (that’s Angel Eyes). So we’re dealing I think with a time before tropes were that hyper-examined and done to death. 

Overall it’s a very stylistic film, which means it does have to fall in with the tropes– as @whilemybodyiswarm once put it to me “good must kill the bad, as it were”. So while the movie I don’t think really tries to make any other moral points other than the vague “War…….bad” mood throughout, it does stay consistent with what you expect.

bleak-nomads:

Blondie doesn’t quite lean forward to Angel’s lips like he wants to, just rests his head on the bones of Angel’s shoulder as soon as he gets close enough. He can feel Angel clench his fist again.

“You’re not making this any easier.”

“Just say it.”

“What do you think I’m going to say.”

“You’re going.”
