A definitive portrait of Ennio Morricone, the legendary composer responsible for some of the most memorable film scores of all time.
This documentary about the composer Ennio Morricone is “exhaustive and rather exhausting”, said Ed Potton in The Times. Morricone, who died in 2020 aged 91, wrote more than 400 film scores, and “it feels as though each is covered in detail over two-and-a-half reverent hours”. What director Giuseppe Tornatore (who worked with Morricone on Nuovo Cinema Paradiso) mainly brings us is “thoroughness”: with commentary from talking heads – including Clint Eastwood and Bruce Springsteen – and an interview with the composer himself, Tornatore munches steadily through Morricone’s career, analysing his scores, ranging from A Fistful of Dollars to The Mission.
