[…] 6 六 Four hour’s film brings more than its length. A great work in 1984 by an Italian, Sergio Leone, with the sort of complex, graceful moviemaking. Leone begins his tale in the middle, slides into the future, then leaps backward to the distant past… seen through the eyes of the aging Noodles as he returns to the neighborhood he fled 35 years earlier as that hunted and haunted adult. The transitions are visual and aural, Leone’s directorial mastery ringing through them like the telephone that nags and nags at Noodles and ignites his memory in that opium den.   U Can’t forget what deeply hidden in Robert De Niro’s eyes. He is marvellous in this film, though, his role in “taxi driver” by Martin Scorsese I love better. My favourite and most touched script from this film, U can still feel the upper emotion (start from Noodles):                 “She called you “miss.” You never got married?  No.  You live alone?  No. Where were you?  I was out of town.  Have you been back long?  A couple of days.  Are you staying?               That depends.  Why do you want to see me?  Two reasons. Wanted to see if you did the right thing, turning me down to become an actress. Well? You did. You’re terrific.  ”Age cannot wither her.” It’s like the play was written for you.  What was the other reason?  The other reason……is to decide whether I should go to a party tomorrow night  Party?  Yeah, on Long Island. A Secretary Bailey.  Do you know Secretary Bailey?  No. But I was invited anyway.  If you don’t know each other, why were you invited?  I don’t know. I thought you might know why.  Me? Why me?  Because you know him.  …….  (Deborah with David)  What does Bailey want from me?  You came to ask me that?  Why’d he send me an invitation?  I don’t know. Why should I know about your invitations? I don’t know anything. What do you want? Why did you come here? I know nothing.  Now you’re a lousy actress. Who is Secretary Bailey?  Secretary Bailey is a rich businessman. He came to the United States as an immigrant and made a lot of money……in San Francisco and L.A., where he’s lived for  years. I know all that. It’s all in the papers.  What else is there?  He married a very wealthy woman. They had a child. She died when the child was born. A few years ago, he went into politics. Moved here.  That’s history. I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about now. Right now he’s in trouble. Just tell me you’ve been living with him all these years, and you’re his lover.  Age can wither me, Noodles. We’re both getting old. All that we have left now are our memories. If you go to that party on Saturday night, you won’t have those anymore. Tear up that invitation. There’s an exit back this way. Noodles, go through it. Keep walking. Don’t turn around. Please, Noodles. I’m begging you. Please.  Are you afraid that I’ll turn into a pillar of salt?  If you go out that door, yes.”… […]
