Sergio Leones – Once upon a time in the west

A great spaghetti western on the myth of the west. But this time blue-eyed Henry Fonda is the kid-killing villain, and the hero is Claudia Cardinale-charmer Harmonica, a Mexican(!) with a mission, played by Charles Bronson. Bernardo Bertolucci is the writer.

Robert Altmans – McCabe & Mrs. Miller

Robert Altmans snowy and rainy western. A man comes to town, and what a man, though only until pressure becomes to high. Listen to the woman, man!

(Great) music by Leonard Cohen.

Both westerns with a different take on the myths.
