A Glass of Chianti

I watched Once Upon a Time in the West last night

Couple of thoughts:
1. Ennio Morricone knew exactly how long John Cage is good for - a little less than 4 minutes a dose is perfect.
2. Main characters should have instantly recognizable themes, preferably with electric guitar.
3. The only thing as interesting as Henry Ford's eyes is Charles Bronson's face.
4. I'm really glad I've seen High Noon and Shane.
5. I have no idea what someone who hadn't seen the former would make of this movie.
6. Claudia Cardinale makes me feel a little unattractive by comparison.
7. I like this movie the more I think about it. I found it pretty good last night after I finished it, but I couldn't stop thinking about it today.
