Once Upon a Time in America

Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★★

The tragedy of affection through violation rendered epic in an overflowing of cinema. The sexual abuse is certainly problematically handled, but it's not without its purpose of callously disclosing the magnitude of the complete moral degeneration of the once immature youth. Leone & Morricone employing 'Yesterday' as a jazzy, melancholic motif for lost innocence in that stunning montage at the end is as close of a perfect moment as it gets.
