Up to interpretation. I'd like to think it wasn't a dream because that would be a big cop out.

I don't think the WHOLE thing was a dream, just the 60's stuff.

Well that don't make any sense...it's either a dream or it's not.

No, it makes perfect sense.

All the stuff in the 20's and 30's really happened, he really did set up his  buds, Max and the others, and they really did die. The only way he can cope with that is if he smokes a lot of opium. And in smoking the opium he creates a fantasy world where he never killed his best friend. And he never does kill his best friend. I also think that's why when he meets with Deborah in the 60's she doesn't appear to have aged at all, and they act as if the rape never happened.

Also, the 20's and 30's stuff were actually true and in a memoir by Harry Grey called "The Hoods." The 60's stuff was completely an invention of Leone.

Another giveaway: After Max "jumps" in the garbage truck at the end, you will notice there is an extremely asian-looking building (presumably an opium den) right across the street, from the house.

Eleven.

it's a joke. I noticed that when people do a lot of exclamation points in a row they occasionally, accidentally ease the pressure from the shift key at the very end or somewhere in the middle, resulting in a bunch of "1"s being mixed in with the exclamation points, like: !!!!1!!!!!!!!!1"

So I poke fun at it by saying !!!!!!one!!!1!!!eleven!!!11!!

Actually Deborah does look older at the party.

The rape is also mentioned in the form of, if I remember correctly, an apology or forgiveness for something, I forget the exact words.

In the work of Sergio Leone, the terms "dream" and "cinema" are synonyms. The correct answer to the poll is "yes and no."
