It was almost like a film school in a movie. It really illustrated how to make an impact as a filmmaker. How to give your work a signature. I found myself completely fascinated, thinking: ‘That’s how you do it.’ It ended up creating an aesthetic in my mind.” – Quentin Tarantino

This is commedia dell’arte, this is Italian, it’s not an American Western, this is an evolution of the Western—this is a whole new genre and that’s what made it so important…” – Martin Scorsese

Leone at the peak of his epic powers.” – Andrew Sarris

One of the most beautiful and rewarding film epics ever made. As much opera as it is western, this film continues to impress over 50 years after it was made. Directed by Sergio Leone, at the top of his game, and written by Bernardo Bertolucci, Dario Argento, and others. Starring Charles Bronson, Claudia Cardinale, Jason Robards, and Henry Fonda. A must-see.
