Once Upon a Time in America

I've been trying to watch this film for a few days now and after 2 and a bit hours I gave up.

The first hour was terribly boring, the second was more entertaining and I thought we were getting somewhere and then as I started my third part, there was 2 rapes within 20mins, one which the woman apparently enjoyed when she remembered back to it and the second of a woman that the character allegedly loved. I stopped it on the second one and don't intend to go any further.

I don't care how popular it is.
