Seeing what Leone always intended is like getting your dirty glasses washed.
The film slips easily back and forth in time, dancing between the decades, often making the connection from one era to another solely by means of brilliant cuts that work like magic.
A lazily haullucinatory epic that means to encapsulate approximately 50 years of American social history into a single film.
As one would expect from Leone, the film is a brilliant stylistic accomplishment.
There are times when we don t understand exactly what is happening, but never a time when we don t feel confidence in the film s narrative.
