One of Sergio Leone's forays outside of the world of Westerns results in a haunting and sprawling portrait of innocence lost, set in the world of early 1900's gangland. The film is engaging throughout, despite being nearly four hours long, anchored by another great performance from Robert De Niro.

Operatic and rich in period detail, Sergio Leone's farewell to the world of cinema could not possibly have been more grand.

Long and haunting film. What an experience. WAY better than The Godfather. If they are even comparable. Morricone's score is absolutely one of the best scores I've heard. MASTERPIECE.

The OUAT series are Leone's vision about different momments in some countries history. In this case, America. Again, as the dollar's trilogy and the previous OUAT movies, this one is an unforgeatable masterpiece, that Leone had to cut (saddly). Own very unique aesthetic director's concepts and marvelous acting by the whole cast makes this movie a great piece of filmmaking.

"Once Upon A Time In America" by Yojimbo

Sergio Leone's epic tale of the life of a group of slum kids turned gangsters is certainly not for those looking for a cinematic quick fix; it weighs in at over 3 and a half hours. But I must say it did not drag, although I think it could have been a much better film with some serious trimming. The meat of the story, set in the years when the friends had become established gangsters were excellent, but it dwelt on their childhood escapades for far too long and the scenes set in the modern day were overly soapy and melodramatic. My other problem is in it's depiction of women. Without exception, every female character was either a hooker or a rape victim or both. It's certainly worthwhile, especially for the central section, but as a depiction of a criminal dynasty, The Godfather reigns sup...
