It is impressive just how unlikeable every character in this movie is. It is painful to watch such inhuman humans, and that may be its most important quality.
I will never forget this. Especially the soundtrack.
Great film in many ways, but extremely misogynistic! It's disgusting how women are treated/portrayed in this movie. There may be many reasons behind this, but I found scenes with women in very hard to watch. It seems to be a pattern with Sergio Leone movies. However, it still remains a masterpiece. Robert De Niro is fabulous, of course.
