I've always wondered why the US critics seemed to hate Leone's use of Monuement Valley. It suits his films but is a little bit obvious in his imitation of Ford. What are your thoughts?

Leone is not even listed in the books about films made there, at the Gould's gift shop.  The arch is not on the Jeep tours.

I'm going back there in a few weeks. I'll probably make a video and my "use" of Monument Valley  is more likely to be an hommage to Leone than Ford Smiley

Oh, how I want to see it. Actually, if I ever get to USA, I want to see Monument Valley for Leone, and Death Valley for Stroheim (hey! Greed's finale is very SW-like!), rather than New York.
