  1. mt.fuji's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    The same pacing and tone that succeeds with such bravado in Italian westerns fails to translate to Jewish gangsters in New York.

  4. ryan brennan's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Leone's ability to create a film this extensive, and have the story live and breathe within the smallest moments on screen is downright mastery. The opening hour attracts us into the story in near silence, then breaks the introductory and closing narrative away from the revenge subgenre predictability and explores the permanency of regret and memory. Is it a nihilistic or accurate take on the American dream? Both.

  6. Bruno's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Quase três anos desde que o havia visto. Este filme tem tanta mentira. Mas a mentira verdade se torna, esta nostalgia da inocência brutal, e o amor e o ódio e a carícia e a violência se confundem. Apesar das declarações de Leone a este respeito, o filme não me parece tão acrítico assim em relação aos seus protagonistas. Mas a premissa é uma de um mundo de vencedores e vencidos, o mãos limpas deixou afinal (...)

  7. jonijtr's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    A beautiful big piece, and a majestic swan song of Leone's love to America, Once Upon a Time in America is probably one of the most grandeur, epic gangster film ever made with such big scope and non-linear storytelling, giving Leone more chance to expanding his storytelling.

  8. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Rivedendolo dopo anni l'ho amato anche più di quanto lo amassi prima. Oltre la semplice storia dei bambini nel ghetto, è un film che mostra la disillusione adulta di Leone, rispetto quelli che erano i suoi grandi sogni americani di bambino. Un passaggio dalla sua patria ed il suo amato genere western verso le stelle e le strisce, il tutto filmato con magnificenza. Pietra miliare.

  9. ihor's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Leone's epic is a grand tale of mythology over pure realism. A tale that at times, particularly in some majestic shots, transcends human experience in a unique historical American era. Too often though Leone is bogged down in the epic scale over his fascination with manliness and violence grating. A sort of 20th century attempt at creating Homeric like epic is out of place often appearing obtuse and contrived.

  12. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Just a teeny-tiny bit too rapey. Leone was bit disrespectful of DeNiro as well. He said that DeNiro was a great actor, but not a star. Like Clint Eastwood. Great roles for the men, and surprisingly not so much for the women.

  13. El Biffo's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    I love this screenshot of the Down-Under-The-Bridge neighborhood in Brooklyn.

  16. Mr. Manna Bigger's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

  17. Diderot's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Leone is one of very few directors whose cinematic sensibility could be called astonishing. This isn't his best film, but it stands alone among his works and shows the many directions that might have been taken if he'd lived longer. It depicts a world that is quietly, insidiously horrifying and gives full reign to a certain brand of misogyny the coldness of which is only hinted at in Leone's earlier films.

  18. Ekincaidaz's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    An enjoyable day in the life mini miniseries.

  19. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Too big, too messy. Of course. And probably too misogynic. But I measure film in this vauge way of how I see them in my mind and this film is a great film even if it's not good.

  20. I0000days's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Leone is the emptiest of auteurs.

  21. Tigrão's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Splendid, epic, beautiful, heartbreaking, melancholic, thrilling, brutal, sexy, amazing, stunningly shot, out-of-this-world soundtrack, brilliant, provocative, ballsy... I can't run out of adjectives to describe this masterpiece.

  22. Elia Canevascini's rating of the film Once Upon a Time in America

    Uno di quei film che si presenta da solo.
