Well, we've known each other for a long time, haven't we? I told you, the fourth one. In fact the film is at its best when it departs from its agitprop trajectory, and its revolutionary pronouncements right out of the Frantz Fanon playbook. . It's a village of ex-slaves, I believe. Although the name is the same, Brando's character is not to be confused with the actual William Walker, a pre-Civil War military adventurer from Tennessee, who, backed by pro-slavery elements, tried to wrest Baja, California from Mexico, actually did conquer and rule Nicaragua for a while, was defeated in Costa Rica, executed in Honduras, and was depicted in Alex Cox's Walker 1987 , by Ed Harris. First degree burns are similar to a painful sunburn.
Now, is the rest understood? I mean, think of his ghost running through the Antilles. No, I only want to explain, gentlemen. This is because Algiers was a relatively modest docudrama set within one city; Queimada is or tries to be a large-scale historical epic, and the static visual style and direction cause many of the film's major set-pieces to falter. Perhaps I've nothing else to do, but I do know that whenever I try to do something. Well, all that remains now is to settle what to do with him. How many have you counted? And how many English ships are there? But you see the man that fights for an idea is a hero.
So, gentlemen, as you can see. And if it's convenient for them, it is convenient for me to die. He mixes just the right amount of compassion and distance for Walker to do his job effectively. As soon as they realize those soldiers aren't coming back. Brando carries the film in his portrayal of Sir William Walker, who is ready to play either side of the political struggle to satisfy his government's Great Britain needs. Sir William Walker, in the name of the Government of Queimada. One of his real friends.
My people won't be delayed. Well, now I believe we have something to talk about. We've been half way around Europe just trying to find you. All right, on what basis do I negotiate? But, anyway, sooner or later, they are going to kill me. I wouldn't want to find him like this. They may know how to sell sugar but we are the ones who cut the cane! What is needed here is someone with courage. MovieQuotes runs by contribution by its talented members.

Then in the film's second half, he returns 10 years later in the employ of Britain's troop-backed Royal Sugar Company to sabotage the revolution so that England can replace both Portugal and the locals as the beneficiaries of the island's robust cash crop - sugar cane. And on the Sierra Madre, there's no possibility of survival. The film is taut and fast paced. Pontecorvo employs the same techniques here although the supporting cast is fleshed out with a handful of British and Italian character actors , and yet mostly fails.
The population's mostly black or mulatto. Well, I think it's a rather simple calculation. It is ultimately one of those films that is more interesting than entertaining. Unlike the music he made that regenerated the Western genre with his boyhood schoolmate in Rome, Sergio Leone, with the use of such sounds as guitars, harmonicas and whistling, Morricone abandoned his characteristic lush string textures for Burn! Who's merely carrying it for pennies? I was advised to ask you.
