Once Upon a Time in America

Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★★

I saw this film yesterday and I have really been having an incredibly hard time really disecting and judging this film. This past week has been a bit of a mess and I really didn’t get to sit back, relax and enjoy this film as much as I hoped I would. 

With this being said, the film was amazing. It is the kind of film where I look back on it and I can’t find a single mistake or thing that I would like to change. Sergio Leone has made some of my favourite films and this isn’t in any way less fantastic. It might even be on par wit The Godfather as one of the greatest gangster films of all time. 

The acting, cinematography, framing, script, structure was all amazing. Even though I’m not entirely sure what the ending truly ment I still think it was powerful and a perfect ending. 

I want to watch this film again and write so much more about it, but for now this will suffice.
