NeoBhatia’s review published on Letterboxd:
The characters portrayed in Once Upon A Time In America are somewhat different to other gangster films. There is no attempt to portray the characters as good people because they are not. We are not meant to sympathise with these characters. This makes it different from any other gangster film I have seen. The extended director’s cut enhances the film and doesn’t change its pace. I don’t really know which version to prefer. Overall, It is also one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen with great performances, music and cinematography. Watch this film. You will not regret it.
