Once Upon a Time in America ★★★★½

Before I say anything about the movie, I just wanna acknowledge how dope this Letterboxd community is. I never thought I’d really care enough to get too into it, but talking movies with everyone is a lot of fun, and I quickly got sucked in by everyone’s incredibly friendly and inviting nature. So thank you guys, y’all are awesome.

This movie is beautiful. There’s definitely some career defining work in here from multiple different people. De Niro was incredible, James Woods was really good, the score was stunning, the camerawork was incredible. Not too much to say that hasn’t already been said, but I loved it. I still prefer The Good the Bad and the Ugly over this, but this is still some of Leone’s best work.

Also, I don’t know about you guys but baseball is finally back tonight and I’m VERY excited.
