I'm gathering a few odds and ends I've written at other places through the years, as recent events at one of the sites bookmarked on the left have taught me that a website is an ephemeral thing. Some of them I'm reposting here. This is a piece on Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West, a movie I love for many reasons. What I wrote about this film in November 2006 isn't particularly insightful, certainly nothing you wouldn't find better written by a third-tier rotten tomatoes critic.
There are many appreciations of Once Upon A Time In The West. This one is mine.
Frank: Morton once told me I could never be like him. Now I understand why. Wouldn't have bothered him, knowing you were around somewhere alive.
Harmonica: So, you found out you're not a businessman after all.
Frank: Just a man.
Harmonica: We're an ancient race. Other Mortons will be along, and they'll kill it off.
Frank: The future don't matter to us.
Do yourself a favor. See this movie.
