Once Upon a Time in America (1984) – 4/5

Once Upon a Time in America (1984)

Leone is a master and even I can see it.

Great acting and editing too. I read it was originally screened w/ Leone’s cut and loved and then reedited by the studio to be in chronological order and panned by everyone.

Fortunately, I saw the right version. So great.


New feature – One Sentence Summary: I try to sum up the movie in one sentence (which, of course, includes spoilers)…

Gangster kids grow up to be gangster adults with one ratting out the others on a job to send them to prison instead of death only to find the leader didn’t die and hires the rat anonymously later in life to kill him out of guilt/debt/fear.
