Watched Sergio Leone's .... Once Upon a Time in America (1984) during the course of yesterday. ..(Netflix 3h 49m!)
Prohibition era gangsters. ....
Dunno why I've never seen it before and I'm not sure how to explain it for those in the same boat.
Just read some original reviews. ... very polarizing film it appears, which might be in part because Hollywood were not huge fans of Leone's style.
Masterpiece to some.... rubbish to others!
Apparently, when originally released the distributor cut 90 minutes and basically destroyed it.
Anyway, I liked it, and the music by Ennio Morricone is mesmerizing.

Leone and Morricone and cinematographer Tonino Delli Colli are masters.
They also made 'the Good the Bad and the Ugly', and 'Once Upon a Time in the West' together.
Incredible films..

Got through about 40 minutes of it but had to turn it off.

Wish I could get that time back!

I loved it but it's definitely not a feel-good family favourite.

The 80s synth soundtrack is pretty grating if you aren't into it.

Yeah same. It's different but really enjoyed it. Loved the constant loud door buzzer. Great effect.

Spoiler alert for those who want to watch it.

You know at the end when the guys shoot all the other guys in the store and start grabbing sh1t?

They won't be able to get out. That damn faulty door man. LOL

This kept coming up as a suggestion and I'm glad I watched it. Heartbreaking in parts. Great acting by Michael Keaton.
