Once Upon A Time In America (1984)

Most definitely my favorite mob movie, despite of the dramatism, gandeur. Awesome casting and probably the best music in mob films Ive seen. That pipe theme "Cockeye" keeps playing through the film is just so haunting. I also like the way the story is set in three different eras. 'Course I like the 1920s era the best. All the kid roles were played to perfection. I love the part where young Patsy ends up eating the pastry he gets for Peggy. David 'Noodles' Aaronson (Bobby D) and Maximilian 'Max' Bercovicz (James Woods) are brilliantly written characters with a fabulous dynamic between them. There's not a lot of hits in this movie. But the scams are nicely written. Cannot describe this movie accurately with words. "Great movie!!" is all I can say.
