Once Upon a Time in the West
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (15)
Following the success he had with his "Spaghetti Trilogy", Sergio Leone got his opportunity to direct a Western for a big Hollywood studio, and with it, delivered arguably the greatest film within the genre.
A notorious gunfighter in the old west has ambitions to be a wealthy businessman, and plans to drive a woman off her lands, which is also sought after by a railway company.
Though lengthy, Leone's work is a thoroughly professional piece of work. There are no good guys here, and the casting decision of Henry Fonda, a revered American icon, in the lead role of a violent opportunist, proved to be a work of genius.
You'll need a bagful of patience to truly appreciate this, but it's entirely worth the while.
