Robert Harris's evaluation:
Quote
Paramount is back, and they've outdone themselves with their new 4k UHD of Once Upon a Time in the West, a film so magnificent in every detail, that it begged for perfection, and received it.

Techniscope haters need not apply here, as I've been trying to raise public awareness that what has been seen in a few problematic transfer is Not what Techniscope is all about.

As shot by Tonino Delli Colli, presumably from a fully exposed negative, results on this disc are BLOODY GORGEOUS.

Acutely resolved, with brilliant colors and rich blacks, OUaTitW may the film that makes believers of naysayers. I recall seeing the film at Telluride forty years ago, and the quality has never left me.

Originally a monaural relese, the new disc sports a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track that is awe inspiring.

For those unaware, just grab a copy and be amazed. And be prepared for an opening that oddly harkens back to Psycho.

Extraordinary direction from Sergio Leone, a great score by Ennis Morricone, beautifully edited by Nino Baragli, and with a cast to die for:

Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Jason Robards, Charles Bronson, Woody Strode, Jack Elam, Keenan Wynn...

And a story by Dario Argento and Bernardo Bertolucci.

Shot in Mexico, Arizona, Spain, Utah, Italy and Paramount Studios on Melrose.

An absolutely Amazing release!

$38.20. I don't usually do math problems, but for you I made an exception.

Thanks. What would I do without you?

I just took a closer look. It seems the more expensive one is from Europe and includes  "six art cards, a collectible "Morton" train sign and a vintage fold out photograph of the rail road."

Looks like it's either sold out or not available yet on Amazon.co.uk https://t.ly/ETBxV

In France it's 70 euros https://t.ly/xLRd_
