The Official Ennio Morricone Thread

Recommended Posts

Why would Playboy publish false comments by this guy? Anyone else remember the allegedly fake foreign interview with JW where he griped about Star Wars: Episode One?

Morricone probably thinks his movies are trash because they are. I mean the last one which he did had a woman being violently assaulted over and over again and a guy sucking another guy's dick. I'm sure he was expecting a bit of a classier western when he agreed to do it.

That really looks like a trilogy of weird films. And why is Trump on the cover? ;)

 

Now, if only someone could do a definitive release of The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly...

I made a little table couple of days ago with mostly wikipedia-based data on several composers. The number you mentioned would mean Morricone has scored more than Goldsmith, Williams, Horner and Herrmann combined. What the...

Thanks! Did it differ much from the programme you saw in Rotterdam awhile back? I'm curious to know if he's made any changes in the three years he's done this particular tour.
