Once Upon a Time in America

Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★★

I rewatched this with my grandma and it really took us three days because she kept loosing interest. Anyways glad I rewatched sooner than waiting until I got it on Blu Ray. It's on Netflix US till October 1st. Cannot wait to force someone else to experience this movie.

A poetic 229-minute gangster movie. Sergio Leone really did make the last film he made his best film. Don't let the runtime scare you as it scared me because you really do not feel this runtime. It feels long but NOT LONG LONG if that makes sense.

It's such a shame that the place this movie takes place in butchered the film down to something that bombed and never got any big awards people would bring up in conversation for.
