Once upon a time in America

On my previous post about the movie “Scarface”, I got a comment from Peter Himschoot, who said I would also like “Once upon a time in America”. So last week I bought the DVD on eBay, and this morning I got up early to watch it. It’s a long movie (almost 4 hours), but it never feels long. It’s a story that needs a long time to tell properly. It features a great cast (Robert De Niro, James Woods, William Forsythe, …) and some of the most beautiful music I ever heard in a movie (from the hand of Ennio Morricone). Truely a masterpiece.
