Once Upon a Time in America

This is quite possibly my favourite movie of all time. Robert De Niro and James Woods give their best career performance, alongside a very young Jennifer Connelly. Forget The Godfather. This is the real deal. Oh, and don’t even bother with the short version, grab the full-length 229 minutes epic. It is so worth it.
