Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★★

some of the softest morricone themes for leone’s meanest movie. as the gangsters and their tommy guns slowly replaced the cowboys and their six shooters, america was a natural progression for leone and a way to correct his mistake of turning down the chance to direct the godfather. and while this is a masterpiece in its own right- man, am i glad he didn’t direct the godfather.
