This documentary is a short but nonetheless poignant salutation to Segio Leone and his greatest work: Once Upon a time in America. It will contain little new information for those already familiar with the man and his work, but to those with little knowledge of him beside the watching of the film, it gives an interesting insight into both his creative genius and the butchering of his magnus opus by a "naieve" Hollywood.
Even for those already in the know it nonetheless contains a powerful and fascinating interview with James Woods who describes OAAT in America as the "Everest" of his achievements and how he regretted telling Leone this himself. Its ending, in juxtaposing the close of the OAAT with the end of the documentary also provided for me a moving and fitting tribute. Short yes, but ultimately still a telling tribute and interesting to those unfamiliar with the life of the great Sergio Leone
