Once Upon a Time in the West

Oct 9, 2005

Many months ago, I picked up the collector's edition DVD of Once Upon a Time in the West at Target (I got it on the cheap - only $7). But I only now have gotten around to watching it.

I'm a fan of classic Western films, and I'm particularly fond of Sergio Leone's work (I own all of the "Man With No Name" movies starring Clint Eastwood). So this particular movie was a real treat. It has all the classic Sergio Leone moments: tight close-up shots, brutal violence, and a mysterious hero. Charles Bronson and Henry Fonda played superbly in the film, and the score is nearly as good as that of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I heartily recommend this movie if you haven't seen it. Take note that it's fairly long (2 hours and 45 minutes), but it won't disappoint.
