D'Amb, registration on the Times site is free, and news items generally remain accessible there for at least a week. But, I'll post the quote here ...

Quote
10. 'THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY' Sergio Leone's massive and magnificently berserk epic western was not only restored to its full length — well, there are undoubtedly more scenes out there — but its delirious power was projected onto screens around the country so everyone could see Leone's influence on filmmakers from Kubrick to Spielberg. The most we can ask for — until the next version shows up.


The Times published three "ten best" movie lists this year. As I noted in the News forum, both of the Times' other two film critics placed Mystic River second on their lists; Mitchell didn't include it in his ... whereas he chose to recognize a film originally released 37 years ago. I find that a bit odd, but maybe it's just me.

I guess because it was restored and then re-released it somehow counts as a 2003 release?  :-\

I'm a little confused at this one as well. It would be nice to know the reasoning behind his choice.

I think that's the reason, it would also make it eligible for and oscar nomination if I'm not mistaken.

I check in here every once in a while, lol.

GBU would get my vote for best original score (I still think it's the best example EVER of music coordinating with and complementing a film) and for Eli Wallach for his acting performance.

I think it wouldv'e been cool if Eli Wallach was in all three of Sergio Leone's Spaghetti westerns with Clint and Lee Van Cleef.
