Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★

A new film a day, for a year: 112


A really well crafted film. You can tell so much effort went into every scene. Some of the shots were really great and the music was excellent. It was alot sadder than I expected but then again I didn't really know what to expect going into this giant of a film.

The ending felt slightly anti climactic and it leaves you very conflicted on what you should be thinking of the main character because of some of the things he does.

Also there were a few story beats that were left unresolved near to the end that needed to be tied up in a film that is nearly 4 hours long, but great film nonetheless.
