Cinema Cycle - Once Upon A Time In The West

Once Upon A
Time In The West
Friday, 02.14.2020

Bruce Johnson

Setup / Background

  1. I could just watch the credits for hours.
  2. This appears to be the quintessential spaghetti Western.
  3. There is almost no real dialogue for the first 30 minutes of this film
  4. But I believe the body count is up to eight
  5. Cinematography and soundtrack are excellent
  6. Watching this film is like watching a motion picture painting, it's just all visual and sensory overload with very little dialogue.
  7. The long slow unraveling plot told through a series of random events
  8. It all slowly starts to make sense.  But you never know what's going to happen next
  9. The great American story, the long-term development of resources
  10. It all makes sense in the end.
  11. I'm sorry but nobody looked as good as Claudia Cardinale does in this movie.
