[quote=“Goodfella, post:15, topic:1350”]Theres nothing to forgive. I for one do not dig his films all that much.
Anyway, I wasnt really speaking of his set direction or costume design. What I mean is his atmosphere. To me it simply feels fake. I feel like Im watching a film.
But anyway, his films most certainly are “overlong, too slow, too big, and in the case of OUATITW even a little pretentious.”[/quote]
I didn’t say “forgive me” to you, I know you don’t like Leone’s films, you’ve already said so
But there are many admirers of OUATITW here, have to be gentle with them or they’ll be upset
I don’t like that film either, but I like the major part of the rest of Leone’s work, and he was the one who founded the SW genre.
But yes his films are many times theatrical so to speak when it comes to acting, and his scripts don’t have much story.
We already know that, and nobody thinks this aspect of Leone’s films had anything to do with the real historical wild west
