Once Upon A Time In The West

I sat down to watch this wonderful Sergio Leone epic on TV last night, and wake up to hear that Charles Bronson’s died!
It’s a few years since I last watched this, and the first thing that strikes you is the long drawn out sequences – they’re wonderful. From the opening credit sequence as three gunslingers await the arrival of “Harmonica” on the train. I think that the whole thing lasts around 14 minutes. And then of course there’s the wonderful Morricone score. Simply superb stuff.
