I don't know if someone's allready posted about that,if so I apologize.I just finished the new john fawell's  book  about OUATIW.It's a very elaborate work and the only subject is the movie .Very detailed critic's work.Obviously,author is a big fan of Leone,and even bigger of OUATIW.If you look for biography or trivia you're not gonna find any.Personally I liked the book, though it's a bit hard to read well, maybe cause I love OUATIW so much,that didn't bother me.The only thihg I disagree with the author is that every time he mentions OUATIA he makes it look as a lesser movie,less of a movie than OUATIW.Lord, I love them both.

To be perfectly frank (but not perfectly "Frank," or I'd have to kill you) I was disappointed with the book. It pretty much just rehashes ideas put out by Frayling and others, sometimes without giving proper credit. I didn't find a single new insight or idea anywhere in it. For $35.00 dollars, I was hoping for a lot more.


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
