Leone goes out with a bang. Though this was his last film, he showed that he still had the skill that made the Dollars trilogy. Once Upon a Time in America is the definitive gangster epic, chronicling the childhood, romance, and violence of an aging gangster. The score perfectly compliments the story of the film, perfectly expressing the vast range of emotion running through the characters. With excellent performances from the entire cast and production values that have yet to be truly bested, Once Upon a Time in America is one of the best films ever made.
