...Stimulating analysis of "classic" and "contemporary" cinema.
Indeed, and with good reason. It is onc of the greatest of all westerns, and certainly (in my view) on the same level of cinematic brilliance as Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, even with a Morricone score to match. One of its decade's greatest films.
I will always remember seeing Once Upon a Time in the West the first time and being completely blown away, practically with my jaw on the floor when it ended. I still see it once every couple of years or so... Such a masterpiece.Once Upon a Time in America, I admire, but don't have the visceral love for... But that's a film I haven't seen in a long time, and would like to reappraise. Thanks for mentioning it, Sam.
