General Discussion / Frayling's 'Once Upon a Time in Italy'

Hi,

I just sent away for this - the latest Leone reference. Has anyone gotten
it yet? - if so, how is it?

In the mid-80's when I first got into Dire Straits, I discovered that they
had a song on their second album ('Communique') called 'Once Upon A
Time In The West'! The lyrics refer to the film, and the rhythms are a
little Morricone-esqe.

There's no doubt, 'TGTBATU' is a huge, dazzling Western saga, made with oodles
of style, and much humor, but for this Leonegeek nothing compares to 'OUATITW'.
It's so artful, so powerful, dark, exasperating, infuriating, electrifying, funny, sad,
and most other adjectives at one time or another. It is in my top 3 favorite films
of all time - and it's my favorite Leone film. It's an 'art western', unlike 'TGTBATU'
which though very stylish, is just a great Spaghetti western, I think 'OUATITW'
achieves something more.

Thanks,

Hi,

As well as being a devoted Leonephile, I also collect posters, lobby
cards, soundtracks, books, etc.,etc. Does anyone have anything
they're willing to trade or sell? I have quite a lot of items from his
films (all his films) that I might consider parting with. Thanks!

I think the Kurosawa analogy is a perfect one. 'OUATITW' has artsy flourishes, as does
'OUATIA', but I wouldn't call either 'Art' films. Neither are purely commercial entertainments.
Leone lured moviegoers in promising broad, accessible genre entries, once in viewers were
treated to his genius, utilizing his many skills with stylish storytelling.

Both 'OUATITW' and 'OUATIA' are favorites of mine for more reasons than I can list here.
He dazzles viewers with hypnotic images, Morricone's classic scores, etc.,etc.

Leone is God!

General Discussion / 'Duck You Sucker' extended soundtrack cd
« on: November 28, 2004, 07:21:13 AM »
Last night on eBay a cd soundtrack (not Cinevox's) for 'Fistful of Dynamite' sold for around
$75!! I couldn't tell if it was a bootleg or what but I really wanted to find out. It had booklet
art I'd never seen, and the advertised running time was around 75 minutes. Anybody have
this or know if it's the real deal?

General Discussion / Film Noir elements in 'Once upon a time in America'
« on: November 21, 2004, 07:38:52 AM »
I'm a huge Noir buff, and a huge Leonegeek, for me 'O.U.A.T.I.A.' is where the two
passions meet. Any Noir fans out there who detect the Noir elements in Leone's last
masterpiece?
