Once Upon a Time in the West followed by Once Upon a Time in America and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. They are all epic tales of corruption, greed and tragedy which are almost Shakespearean, superbly directed and acted with great scores.

Even though I love them all, I've picked AFOD(ynamite), simply for the fact I had a whole pub disbelieving me when I related the plot!!! And the fact it is a greatly entertaining film.....

Once Upon a Time in America for me, one of my all-time favourite films. But his others are all cracking films too. Next favourites would be Once Upon a Time in the West and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Incidentally, Sergio Leone was the one of the first people that Ruggero Deodato showed Cannibal Holocaust to. Leone told him it was a masterpiece, but that he would get in a lot of trouble over it. No shit.

I could go into detail about how great the film is as to why this is my choice, but just listen to that soundtrack and no more needs to be said.
Completely agree, I watched it last week, such a classic film and definitely my favourite soundtrack.

Once West I found had a very haunting score with the Harmonica that just fit the film's tone of a west where nothing was what it seemed and all the cowboy's didn't do their washing in Daz 2 in 1 wash to make their tops whiter then white

Difficult choice but I had to go with Once Upon A Time In The West. The composition of that film is perfect. My second choice would probably be America.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly is my favourite. It's his most consistent film in my opinion. Second place is probably A Fistful of Dynamite.

That's the one I voted for too, Vampix. It's my all time favourite Spaghetti Western and the best of the Dollars trilogy for me. I just love all the characters - especially the introduction of Van Cleef - and how they are always one step ahead of each other. It's fantastic! It's packed with incredible style too - it's just so freakin' AWESOME!
