"The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is the kind of film that for most people exists somewhere in the half-light of cultural memory. You know it, sort of, but the details are rather foggy.

Bottled up on the small screen, the film seems simply great, but unfurled in its full-size theatrical splendor is where it truly blossoms into something transcendent.
