My oppinion:
Shoot the Living and Pray for the Dead was an unusual spaghetti western. It's slow paced, but with a great atmosphere. The score is also nice and fit in with the general feel of the movie. Klaus Kinski does an excellent and believable acting performance, as always. The acting is quite good from just about everyone actually. The camera work is really good and the movie just looks very nice. The only complaint I've got is that it was a bit too slow paced at certain points, but all in all, I really enjoyed it. Another problem was the dubbing, which was pretty awful at times, but I'm sort of getting used to that by now.
This is perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but if you're not the impatient type, I'd definantly give this a go!

My rating:
