Once Upon a Time in the West ★★★★

"Did you bring a horse for me?"
"Looks like we're shy one horse!"
"You brought two too many."

An epic of intense western masculinity and passive badassery, packed with stellar perfomances and the best script a western has ever had. "Harmonica" is one of the best characters...ever. Hell, everyone is awesome in this thing. Some bad/cheesy editing and sound here and there, but it's overall forgivable. Absolutely justifies its runtime. The opening scene is essentially nothing happening and I cannot get enough of it.
