The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

The following is a very short review in which I attempt to analyze masculinity and its role in the final scene of the Sergio Leone movie classic, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Be prepared – nothing here has been changed since hitting “print” and running to class. If…
