Once Upon A Time In America / How could it possibly be a dream?
« on: July 14, 2003, 03:43:45 AM »
Sergio himself and many viewers sometime supposed that Noodles' smile at the very end was meant to show his realization that all events occurred in the '68 were just a sort of nightmare dreamt in the opium den.

Personally I've always liked that idea because it used to shed a more optimistic light on the ending.
Suddenly yesterday a doubt crossed my even-too-rational mind while watching the movie for the umpteenth time:  how can anybody living in the '30s dream of a future with TV sets, frisbees, phone boots in the streets, and who knows how many else modern stuffs? Doesn't this exclude any possibility of the events occurring in '68 to be part of a dream? Doesn't this mean that those events really occurred?

Please let me know what you think about it, and do not hesitate to call me the worst names if you think that I'm spoiling your conception of the movie.

Once Upon A Time In America / Why do we love OUATIA so much?

Thanks to Aaronson for giving me the idea for this new topic.
No doubt, this movie has plenty of crude scenes and sexist behaviours. Nevertheless it is said to be 'my favourite movie ever' by a lot of people.
Why is that?
OK, Leone and De Niro are great, Morricone's themes are sublime, and the story is truly epic.
But there must be something else, and I'm not able to say what that something is...
