...[The] lensing is excellent...
Rating: 4/5 -- Sergio Leone's languid, lovely and lengthy ode to Lower East Side mobsters (more specifically, mobster films) ... Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- A tale of haunting introspection, unremitting power and potent symbolism. "America" ruminates on the corrosive effects of greed, violence, objectification and pain, and forces us to face despicable acts of a stand-in for our nation's worst impulses. Full Review
The Film Yap
Rating: 3.5/5 -- While Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in America" is not quite the masterpiece that some make it out to be due to its excess, there are still plenty of things to recommend about it. Full Review
...ONCE UPON A TIME is a work of technical beauty and sombre emotion...
Two boyhood friends grow up to become the kingpins of a prohibition-era criminal empire until their own greed and ambition cause their downfall. Based on Larry Grey's novel, "The Hoods."
Sergio Leone's epic film chronicles the lives and loves of a quintet of Jewish mobsters from New York. Beginning with their boyhood in the 1920's, the film covers the story from the point of view of the aging troupe's clever ringleader, Noodles. He recounts the tale of a life filled with brutality and violence. And clearly he's still got some plans up his sleeve...
