Title: (ONCE UPON A TIME)

"Noodles may have made up the ENTIRE story (the childhood years, the prohibition years, and the 1968 years) in his opium-induced state. Remember that the title of the movie implies a tale or a work of fiction (not fiction from our standpoint but fiction from the storyteller's POV). Also, Noodles was known to be a reader of literature (Martin Eden in the bathroom). Are we just to assume that Noodles, a.k.a. David Aaronson, wasn't creative enough to invent the whole story?"
