See? You can be smart when you want.

I'm (still) praying for a positive effect on you. :-*

The FC is the DC as it should have been - it is the version to watch.

I personally stand with what I always said: I care less about technicalities (and versions, for that matter) as I care if the movie is overall good on all levels. BUT, after all the butchered/spoiled versions of BR that I watched, and after all the times I thoroughly enjoyed the movie even as such, I must honestly say the FC/DC is by far the superior of them all. By far. The unicorn has nothing to do with it.

I think it's fair to say that for a director such as RS, who was, at least at the time, much more concerned with the story and visuals than actually directing the actors, trusting his vision is the way to go. There are countless angles, lightings, +/- 1 - 2 sec cuts that I noticed even on the first watch, that improved the movie experience on all levels - drastically.

YES YES YES

I'm beginning to think I'm having a positive effect on you.

Well to tell you the truth amigo I do not know. :-\

I always thought of it as a sequelless movie.

I'd personally be happy with it as long as it successfully tells something about human condition (which isn't easy since the first one told pretty much everything you need to know) in some kind of scifi noirish atmosphere.

Huh? The first told us something about the android condition, certainly; since there were no significant human characters in the film, I can't imagine what your parenthetical comment is referring to.

You just failed a Voight-Kampff test, and it was an easy one.

You failed the Siskel-Ebert test, the easiest one going.

There is also, unfortunately, Leone's inability to call it quits. The movie stretches on for nearly three hours, with intermission, and provides two false alarms before it finally ends. In between, we're given a plot complex enough for Antonioni, involving killers, land rights, railroads, long-delayed revenge, mistaken identity, love triangles, double-crosses and shoot-outs. We're well into the second hour of the movie before the plot becomes quite clear. These difficulties notwithstanding, "Once Upon a Time in the West" is good fun

Oops. I meant the Kael-Sarris test, of course.

Dust Devil, you ever check out any of the other films by Denis Villeneuve? I've only gotten around to seeing Prisoners and Sicario . I guess the hype got the better of me because I didn't see what everyone else was seeing. Especially in Sicario where everyone seemed to make a big fuss that Emily Blunt wouldn't be in the sequel where she is the least interesting character in the film. But he does manage to make Benicio Del Toro the most interesting character to watch and he hardly speaks. Which gives me some relief seeing Gosling in the lead being that he hardly ever says anything in films these days.

No, I have yet to see any movie of his. Not that I avoided them intentionally, it's just that they didn't come my way (yet). Also, I'm not very eager to pay to see any new movie nowadays, to be honest. I was able to strategically escape going to the cinema the last (at least) 5 - 7 times. :) I might check Sicario soon, though. ;)
