‘Once upon a Time in America’

Once upon a time in America. ANDUnited States, 1984 (217 minutes). Director: Sergio Leone. Cast: Robert de Niro, Joe Pesci, Tuesday Weld, James Woods.

One of the most applauded contemporary films of recent years. Sergio Leone thus ended a trilogy that began with Get down the fuck followed with Until his time came and that closed this interesting film. More than a gangster film in the style of the reigning film noir, this production is a deep look at time, its passage and its consequences. Good performers for an admirable and admired film. Essential.

‘Do you know Joe Black?’

Meet Joe Black? United States, 1998 (172 minutes). Director: Martin Brest. Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Brad Pitt, Claire Forlani.

An unbelievable script and a duration that exceeds what is admissible are the heavy ballasts that this fantasy drags, starring, the best of the show, by Anthony Hopkins, giving life to a rich businessman in the world of communication, and Brad Pitt, embodying death itself. Overly pretentious but passable as a whole.
