jamesryder_’s review published on Letterboxd:
Definitely the best gangster film of all time. The close up on noodles eyes on the transition from old to young noodles and the scene near the end where noodles is looking at the gun, thinking about killing Mr Bailey with the most powerful flashback in film history happens are not just my favourite scenes from the film but are also my favourite scenes I’ve ever seen out of all the films I’ve ever watched. I relate to the films themes so much like wishing you could go back to the past to you favourite period and relive your favourite memories again.
Also the fact people give this film a low rating or bring there rating down because of the rape scenes make me laugh, it’s only a film chill
