Abridged Book DescriptionEdit

Once Upon a Time in the West is the first Leone film to place violence in a truly political context, indicting the corrupt (and crippled) railroad tycoon who "leaves two shiny, slimy tracks like a snail" as he bulldozes across the landscape, employing outlaw flunkies to dispose of inconvenient settlers who won't unsettle easily... With striking widescreen compositions and epic running time, this is truly a Western that wins points for both length and width.
