a classic

This is an epic, episodic tale of the lives of a small group of New York City Jewish gangsters spanning over 40 years. The movie centers on David 'Noodles' Aaronson (Robert De Niro) and his lifelong partners in crime, Max (James Woods), Cockeye (William Forsythe) and Patsy (James Hayden) and their friends, who all grew up in New York's Lower East Side in the 1920s-1930s. In the late 1960s, an eld... read more

A great classic

You know, sometimes, before watching a classic, you build up some huge expectations but when you finally watch the damned thing, especially after waiting for so many years, the end-result can let you down a little bit. Well, it didn't happen with this movie, that's for sure. Indeed, I kept hearing about it for many years and, finally, I got my hands on it and I was mesmerized from the beginning un... read more

So far, I think this has been the longest film I've seen in my life, I had no idea that this movie had 4 versions and just saw the original version of 322 minutes. You do not know when it would end after two hours, I did not got bored seeing as it was in GoodFellas, is significantly better than De Niro's character in this one and the story best fits my personal tastes.

" Epic storytelling trying to tell an entire life story in just under four hours. James Woods, Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro at their absolute best before becoming parodies on themselves and any film that "discovered" Jennifer Connelly should be applauded. Ennio Morricone's wonderful music score add tons of extra layers of emotion to the film too and it is a film I want to rediscover at least once a year. It was the final movie of Sergio Leone but what a way to finish one's career with."

"30.4. DVD Uusintakatselu, ei muutoksia. Leone kaavaili tätä päätyökseen, jonka teko oli tarkoitus aloittaa Hyvien, Pahojen ja Rumien perään. Suunnittelun on tosin sanottu kestäneen koko aikavälin. Suurien tunteiden elokuvaa jälleen, jossa yksilön pahuus ja kykenemättömyys empatiaan (plus naisviha vielä piälle) tuodaan äärimmäisyydessään esille vasta, kun hahmo on tullut tutuksi, jolloin katsoja kokee yllättävän aitoa pettymystä ja inhoa hahmoa kohtaan. Väkivalta on v"

"30.3. Maailma tuskin kaipaa enää yhtään oman elämänsä elokuvakriitikkoa kommentoimaan Sergio Leonen elokuvia. Koristellut yleislatteudet pois jättäen haluan vain todeta, että edes tämä elokuva ei saanut minua kiinnostumaan gangsterieepoksista. Oli huomattavan työlästä tuntea yhtään mitään elokuvan yksiulotteisia heterokarpaaseja kohtaan ja pääasiassa tästä syystä arvosanani jää yleiseen mielipiteeseen nähden matalahkoksi."
