Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Once Upon a Time in the West
I waited far too long to finally watch this movie. And what can I say other than I absolutely love it.
I'm a huge Sergio Leone fan to begin with. And this film doesn't disappoint. The writing is good, the cinematography is excellent and the score is damn near perfect. The acting is excellent as well.
I love the casting for this movie also. Charles Bronson's eyes are so damn haunting. Jason Robards eyes are so damn sad and Claudia Cardinale's eyes are so damn beautiful.
And as you know, there's not a lot of dialogue in Leone films so facial acting is so very important. And I couldn't have been happier with this performance from these characters... and that's not even mentioning Henry Fonda's performance as Frank.
I can't praise this film enough.
9 out of 10
