The two best westerns going head-to-head. Leone tops Altman here.

The Good , The Bad & The Ugly is great. Altman made a good western.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a better western than McCabe & Mrs. Miller in the conventional sense. That doesn't matter, though, because both are in my Top 10, and so attempting to judge them by genre is meaningless. They represent a cinematic ideal for me that transcends mere genre classification. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is an epic and wonderful motion picture, true, but it has not achieved the same exalted position in my personal canon as McCabe

WTF?! I just wrote out a lengthy explanation of my philosophical reasons for choosing McCabe & Mrs. Miller and most of it got cut off. Well, I guess my opportunity to spread Enlightment was thwarted.

my 2 favorite westerns, TGTBATU is my favorite, but McCabe and Mrs Miller is more intellectually challenging.
