Is this movie anywhere near as good as "Fistful of Dollars"

...FWIW, Leonard Maltin gave High Plains Drifter three stars; here's a pretty glowing review from another source:

Below is why I like it and always list it as number 1 on westerns. I like the midget guy too, (taken from the above listed link to a review)....

>>>>Slightly surreal in places, High Plains Drifter is perhaps one of the more off-beat, and as result, fascinating post-spaghetti American Westerns. As a tale of revenge, it is carried along by a powerful eerieness and an undercurrent of mordant dark humour to what is realty a pretty unusual climax.

High Plains Drifter is my favorite Clint Eastwood western from his spagetti western days. His best western (IMO) is Unforgiven.

"High Plains Drifter"? I thought that was a documentary of Gary Hart's presidential campaign in 1984...
