Once Upon a Time in America

Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★★

An extremely well directed movie with some truly spectacular production design. As expected Robert De Niro and James Woods are both great but what surprised me the most was just how great the child actors were. The music was great and it helped pace this very long movie. All of the character, no matter how big their role, were very developed and there are some really good character moments that carry a lot of emotional value. The cinematography was really good and there are some really well framed shots with great uses of reflection, scale, and color. This is just an amazing movie and if you like The Irishman then you'd adore this movie as it's even better.
