ldh's review

A film much maligned, with an incredible story of how it was made and received, and then remade to final acclaim. This is a vast epic western with great performances, great soundtrack, and an unbelievable art direction with a detailed and meticulously created world. At times, i thought i was watching an alternate version of Once Upon A Time In The West in that respect. Of course, this film doesn't come close, but it's still quite a pleasure to watch nevertheless. I really like longer movies, and slowly sliding into the worlds they have constructed. This is such a film with the director's cut clocking in at 3h and 40mn that therefore requires a serious time investment. I found it paid off.
