My title is a cliche but in this case it's the only phrase to use. The version of this movie available now, with its extra disc full of great bonus material, is an example of how to bring DVD format to its highest potential. First of course there's the movie, and its director Sergio Leone. Every Leone movie I've seen--Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good Bad and Ugly, Once Upon a Time in America--is wonderful, but this tops them all. Imagine the year 1969: what a great time to be a western film lover. You had this, and Sam Peckinpah's Wild Bunch in the same year. Incredible. Anyway, it's impossible to list all the great scenes, so I'll stick with the first. If you love the credit sequence you'll love the movie; it's not for everybody, however. So those credits, mostly silent except for a windmill creaking, which Leone somehow makes sinister, and one of the minimal details he uses to establish authentic mood, are the litmus test. You'll either love the movie or hate it. The scene is built on a genius contradiction: it's so tense that you want it to end, but it's so beautifully done, so built on image and gesture and glance, that you also hope it never ends. The whole movie is that delicious. And the cast--wow. Everyone is at top form, but check out Henry Fonda as the leanest meanest bastard imaginable, but also someone you can't avoid enjoying because it is the GREAT Mr. Fonda, with Leone getting maximum mileage out of close ups of Fonda's ice-blue eyes, as unforgiving as a western sky, generally acting like the amiable stalwart figure he always plays, until he shoots little kids and fat lackeys whom he doesn't trust because they wear both suspenders and belts: and as Fonda says, how can you trust a man who can't even trust his own pants?Read more ›

If you have never been scared of Henry Fonda, this is the movie that will do it for you. The scene in the beginning, right after the whole family is killed is so eerie as the gunmen just appear silently from the brush. Henry Fonda's cold, killer eyes staring down the little child before he shoots him. Wow.

This is a very well made film, nothing like is has been made in years. Every scene takes its time to build up the right mood. This is a movie to watch when you have alot of time and nobody is around to bother you. The DVD transfer is nothing short of amazing, the color and quality of this 35 year old film will leave you speechless.

Claudia Cardinale is an absolutely stunning beauty, Charles Bronson is perfect as the vengeful quiet loner. I didnt expect Jason Robards to work well but he is very effective.

Definitly a movie to buy, not just rent. Something to give to someone who really appreciates epic movies the way they used to make them.

Leone went to America and started his second trilogy with this Western. Then came A fithful of dynamite and finally Once upon a time in America. The title for the second movie in France was Once upon a time the Revolution. This second trilogy had this in common, titles started with the same words. Leone was once again majestious choosing the right characters, Fonda for an unusual role in a depictable character and Bronson as the guy who doesn't talk much, like Eastwood in previous movies. The music accompanies the image in a beautiful way like when Cardinale arrived at the train station and the camera goes up to reveal the entire city with the music taking off with the choirs. The dust, the shootings, the rocks of Monument vallee, everything reminds of the wild west. The first scene is perfect with these 3 men with their own story, the fly, the water drop etc...Leone wanted Eastwood, Wallach and Van Cleef to play these 3 guys. It would be have a nice cameo after the Good the bad and the ugly. Eastwood didn't want to be remember in Leone's movie as a guy who gets killed. This shows how much characters are important, how much actors got involved in these movies. Bronson plays perfectly the guy who remembers how his brother was killed. Almost all violent scenes are not shown, just suggested, like the massacre, we only see dead bodies. This movies was made like a Greek drama, very slowly, without a lot of dialogues, and in a very theatratical and solennal way. This is a must see for western lovers.

This review is done from a psychological/mythological perspective and highlights symbolic material in the tradition of Jungian research into the collective unconscious.

The opening shot of the film shows a rickety shambles of a door which slowly creaks open. An elderly man turns to look at the door and sees a tall, lean, hollow-faced gunman--the gun and bullets are framed first in the shot and as the camera pans up to the gunman's face a ghostly rush of wind is heard. The elderly man turns to look and sees two other men framed in the other two doors. This opening moment sets the symbolic tone for the film, which is about the moment when someone transcends their normal life and becomes someone exceptional. In this film the exceptional usually means an exceptional killer.

The multiple doorways in this opening scene foreshadow the unholy gateway pictured toward the end of the film, where we learn the story behind the creation of the deadly character, Harmonica, played by Charles Bronson. This gateway to horror is like a demonic mandala with a suffering, agonized man and child in the middle, two ominous guards standing at the sides and the Monument Valley in the background.

Once a man has gone through that gateway of sublime disregard for human life and feeling, he becomes the gunslinger as visualized by Sergio Leone--a ghost of a man with eyes of ice and no human feeling. Satisfaction for this man is in death and brutality; moments of ecstasy are emphasized in the mysterious soundtrack which swells to a crescendo of fulfillment and joy at the moment of confrontation with death. Of particular note is Henry Fonda's performance. He plays an evil man with eerie sensitivity and achieves expressions of sadistic intimacy at the moment of supreme cruelty.
