Most American public as well as the outside world have came to grip that
America has deviated from democratic governance during the Bush-Cheney's
eight years reign. The very same Republicans in Washington are still standing as
obstacle to the Obama's administration from restoring the democratic framework
which they have heavily tarnished. With the Bush-Cheney style of governance,
you are merely as good as whatever the administration can get out of you at that

4 This director, so famous for his operatic bombast, had a cult for the fine, delicate
and miniature. Leone's cinema is often as memorable for its fine detail as it is for
its broad and sweeping gestures. Ted Kurdyla, “production liaison” for Leone's
Once Upon Time in America shoot in New York, described Leone as “a
combination director and art director,” and numerous accounts bear out that
description.5 Leone was a kind of amateur archivist of the West and so brought

avenge himself on Max is to refuse to recognize him and to refuse to kill him—a
deliberate reversal of the “big gundown” toward which the first four Westerns all
aim. It's easy to take Once Upon a Time in the West somewhat simplistically as a
tribute to the values that won the West and made America great—the strength,
dreams, and pluck of the frontier entrepreneur. But with Duck, You Sucker! an
uneasiness begins to make itself felt. A Vietnam connection? A presage of

Not only did he study many Civil War photographs on which he based his
cinematography, but he actually used genuine Civil War artillery in the film.10
The visual effect is one of realism in film to which American audiences were not
accustomed. After The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Leone went on to create two
of his greatest works, Cera una volta il west (Once Upon a Time in the West) in
1968, starring Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson, and Cera una volta in America
(Once Upon ...

Would you like to hear my “Ode to the Genesee River,” upon whose sylvan banks
I brood? All right, I shan't subject you to my versifying. (Do not call me poetaster!)
But in the prelude to the War of 1812, when next the conservative critique of
expansion and war would surface, one of America's great men of letters cut his
political eyeteeth in defense of those classical liberal (which is to say, in a later
context, conservative) tenets of peace and free trade. Once upon a time in
America, poets ...

DE NIRO HAS the same centrality, even more so, in another and even more
magical movie, Sergio Leone's last and greatest film, Once Upon a Time in
America (1984)—another riff on classic Hollywood, on the movies of the thirties
and forties that the director grew up with in Mussolini's Italy and never got over.
Leone (who died in 1989) made his first great success, of course, by reinventing
the western in the 1960s, in his Dollars trilogy with Clint Eastwood. America is
some version of ...

Apace, for someone who grew up during America's great China hiatus, the world
still continues to look much like a Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoon of the
era, where a jar of “vanishing cream,” rubbed on, makes a character instantly ...
But one can still rub one's eyes sometimes, still say truly in retrospect that once

to being reduced to a lesser Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, food out of a
