_Once Upon a Time in the West_ is an overlooked film? Well. . .OK. My
choice is a little film called _The Dresser_ which stars Albert Finney as
a frayed at the edges Shakespearian actor touring England during WWII.
It's a kind of self-reflexive exercise that juxtaposes art with "reality"
underscoring the occasional futility of both. I can't remember the name
of the actor who stars with Finney but both are superb.
