Heat (1995) Too long, it gets boring and boring as it proceeds. Had it been cut an hour it could have earned a 7-8/10. As it is it's 6-7/10. Pacino is often at his hammiest worst, while De Niro delivers probably his tamest performance in an action movie: no grimaces, no noddings, no shouts.

The documentary "Elvis: That?s the Way it Is" is available for pretty cheap right now on the french iTunes and is a most watch. That's the special edition, which means incredibly remastered sound and pictures but also a few scenes/songs have been cut (dont can?t help believin, are you lonesome tonight and bridge over troubled water).

Brancaleone alle Crociate (1970) Non as good as the original, but still worth checking. Here you have Sandrelli for Spaak: nothing lost, obviously. 6-7/10

Le petit soldat 8/10 - Filmed mostly in Geneva! Very well done and ages well. Good story and actors. Michel Subor as usual is great!

Yeah it is VERY realistic. It looks sureal in person, but once you've been to those territories and then watch th movie it looks uterly natural. It's just the way it is in these deserts.

"Throughout the movie, he shoots Monument Valley in such a huge way that it's nowhere near realism ..."

Throughout the movie? Is he aware that Monument Valley was only used in two scenes?

If the writer actually lived out west/Arizona-Utah-New Mexico, not uncommon to see sunlight on one side and storms on the other in the distance, like in the arch scene in Once-West.  Leone and crew would've had no idea they could time things in advance to intentionally make that happen, but not uncommon out here.  I've seen this effect myself about 3 times in the last week.

Apparently similar for "Bye, Bye Birdie" film.  Birdie was a parody of Elvis anyway, and Parker nixed that.

Strangely no effort is made, if not implicitly, to uncover the "spark" which led Morricone to develop his style. In 1958 he made some arrangements for Mario Lanza and nothing is said about them, probably because they are quite traditional. It is  true that the first relevant arrangement he made completely unusual was for Gianni Meccia's  IL barattolo (the can) where he used the effect of a can kicked around (I'm not sure a real can was used or some kind of south-american percussion instead) and from there he got the idea of using strange objects and effects with odd applications of regular instruments or voices he had experimented in classical advanced music which came to define his style. And Il barattolo was not the single which saved Italian RCA, as said in the movie. The one who did was Nico Fidenco's Legata ad un granello di sabbia, arranged by the other arranger of the label, Luis Enriquez Bacalov.
