While he may have never won an Oscar, Sergio Leone was a filmmaking titan. Not only did he redefine the western genre with influential films like "Fistful Of Dollars" and "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," his final film saw him deliver a sweeping epic in the shape of "Once Upon A Time In America." And it was fifteen years ago today, the cinema world lost the great director, and with that in mind, here's a way to get up, close and personal with Leone.

While he may have never won an Oscar, Sergio Leone was a filmmaking titan. Not only did he redefine the western genre with influential films like "Fistful Of Dollars" and "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," his final film was the sweeping epic that is "Once Upon A Time In America." Fifteen years ago today, the cinema world lost the great director, and with that in mind, here's a way to get up close and personal with Leone.

Giulio Reale's "Sergio Leone: The Way I See Things," brings together Leone collaborators Eli Wallach and Claudia Cardinale, along with directors Giuliano Montaldo and Vittorio Giacci and historian Christopher Frayling, to discuss the filmmaker's career, trademarks and much more. If that's not enough, be sure to check out our feature, 5 Unmade Movies From The Spaghetti Western Maestro. Watch below. [Cinephilia & Beyond
