i just wonder how much we value these non-leone spaghettis based on whether morricone scored them, because Great Silence has a good ennio score and it sounds like Big Gundown and Face to Face do too, so perhaps these mediocre films are enhanced by Morricone.

But then i spose ur going into the realms of how much leone was reliant on morricone...


 Morricone cannot save a film. It has to be good to great even if he scores it.  Morricone writes his music from what he sees.  It ENHANCES the films.

I rate the Big Gundown better, saw the last 20 minutes on Encore Westerns Friday night.  In Silence, remember how Frrank Wolfe's gun wouldn't shoot because it was "too cold"?  The snow didn't stop Loco's gun hidden in the snowbank from working.

Loco's gun was wrapped in fur.  Thats why it wasn't frozen...

Thanks ole sport.

I should also mention, this was two shoots...shot with almost no planning, probably 4-5 hours total, with a budget of about $100 that went directly to drinks. And I was pretty drunk both nights.
You do your best work when drunk? You and D&D need to collaborate!

Nothing to do with NYC, but Mike Siegel was in Paris for a couple of days to interview Roman Polanski, so I got the chance to have a coffee and a glass of wine with him yesterday afternoon. He was quite ecstatic after he met with Master Polanski. We had a great chat about the industry and Polanski's work.

Mike is the 6th board member I meet IRL.

Cool!

Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills (1989) From the director of Eating Raoul, Paul Bartel - The widow's houseboy and the divorcee's chauffeur bet on which will bed the other's employer first. Along with other shenanigans 7/10

Dr. Caligari (1989) Weird experimental, art house, trashy. 5/10

Done with the EQ episodes. Most likely, I'll be back on this thread in September (no earlier).

Max et les Ferrailleurs - 7/10
Weird and flawed plot, but thatís not the point: top notch acting by the French legends of the time, great vintage Parisian atmosphere and that very special Claude Sautet charm. Oh and Romy isnít believable as a prostitute, but she melts the heart of most characters as well as the audienceís one every time she smiles.
