Title: Alternate OUATIA commentary
Post by: once on March 30, 2011, 12:23:23 PM
During recent months, Benjamin Kerstein, ertswhile film critic for The New Ledger, has been uploading his own OUATIA commentary to YouTube.  So far he's uploaded 17 clips and commentaries, each 9 to 10 mins in length, and he's now up to the hospital scene.

I've not heard all the commentary yet and so far I've got mixed feelings . Definitely agree that Leone was a bit of a paradox in that on the one hand he could create very imaginative and beautiful work but sometimes he exhibited a childish, quite crude side.

I can't watch this whole thing on YT, it's too long.
