One of my favorite movies. I've watched it several times, the violence is extreme, but somehow fitting for the story being told.

The musical score also is great.

Great film indeed, but one of the scenes really left me with a queasy feeling that did not go away.

If it's the one I'm thinking of . . . same here.

On another note: Legend has it that Arnon Milchan and Rafaella Leone (Sergio's daughter) are working on a 4 1/2 hour 'Director's Cut' of Once Upon a Time in America, supposedly to surface in the not too distant future.

Sounds interesting, I say.

That would be great Tom. Please keep us informed if you hear of any further news on the directors cut.
