#497. Once Upon A Time In The West (1968)
Why It's In The Book: "With striking widescreen compositions and epic running time, this is truly a Western that wins points for both length and width." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Adolytsi - 10/10
"This is the type of film that makes me wish I could twist my ratings scale up to 11... Of all the hundreds of films I have seen from the list so far, this is easily in my top three."
alfindeol - 10/10
"All the injuns, orientals and negroes you can handle."
"From Fonda as the evil murderer, to the social commentary on the transition of times, end of the west, and rise of the railroads. Once Upon a Time in the West is a narrative on revenge, new life, and the cost of a violent one."
"Sergio Leone is famous for his westerns in the 60s and now we know why. He’s able to frame a man vs. three dusters having a gunfight and never seem to lose any artistic credit."
It includes not two antagonists, but four or even five – all with their own agendas that cause them to sometimes join with one another and sometimes to oppose one another. That complexity is rare in Westerns, whose stock in trade is easily identifiable good guys and bad guys."
"Perhaps slightly bloated, but completely unforgettable."
"I didn't know that my brain could handle three hours of such insane movie beauty and intense badassery."
"I’m not usually a fan of violence and this is plenty violent. But the images and music are so beautiful and the staging is so stylish that this is a favorite."
"As good a Western as you’ll find."
Shubajit Lahiri - 9/10
"Like Once Upon a Time in America, this too is appropriately named as it chronicles the demise of the West and forms a love letter to the iconic American frontier."
"Everything in Once Upon a Time in the West is heightened to epic, archetypal levels, while at the same time retaining a certain grounded, gritty earthiness."
"Bronson and Robards give fine performances, but Henry Fonda steals the film in a great change-of-pace role as a villain who kills defenseless children and kicks out the crutches from underneath cripples."
"From its opening scene spoofing High Noon to its overblown confrontation between Charles Bronson's "The Man with No Name" and Henry Fonda's villainous Frank. I was completely mesmerized by Leone's one of a kind, operatic style more so than the film's plot, which really isn't all that much more than a collection of familiar western tropes."
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
