Do you see what I see?

This is one of the four featurettes on the Special Collector's Edition 2-Disc DVD of Once Upon a Time in The West, and the second part of the three making-of ones. It consists of interviews(again with those who also did the marvelous commentary track, albeit I think the film historian is absent; Frayling the author of the book about Leone and the directors, including the two "Johns", Carpenter and Milius, are back and have a ton to say) and clips of the movie. The Italian is again subtitled to English, for those of us who do not speak both. This is about the look of the picture, the design, the make-up, and the framing. They get into Sergio's perfectionism, the extreme close-ups, the editing and how important that aspect was to him, the pacing and his attention to detail. This is cut well and is quite concise, containing plenty of interesting information in a running time of a mere 20 minutes. There are no real spoilers in this documentary, even for early scenes. This does not have anything offensive in it, either. I recommend this to any fan of the subject. 7/10
