I found this article while searching for info on another director actually.  I thought it was interesting.  The writer analyzes the conclusions of the Dollars and Godfather trilogies; how Leone and Coppola use what he terms to be "operatic montage".  He defines operatic montage as a synthesis of montage and mise en scene.  In the course of his discussion he talks a bit about film and editing theory, Eisenstein vs. Bazin, antirealist vs. realist approaches to film.  I thought it also underscores how Leone's background of working with Hollywood and Neorealist directors was important in formulating his own style and approaches.  Here's link if you like to read:
