Rub me the wrong way, and I'll go off in your face

I can only fervently disagree, as OUATIA is right up there with "Doctor Zhivago" as my favorite film score ever.  Yes, even the allegedly terrible Speakeasy music.  ::)




never used the word "terrible". I said "Crap". Brings a different meaning to my statement.
I stick by my guns on this one. Unimaginative music on Morricone's part.

I'm gonna agree there. Usually Morricone's Scores go with the movie in such a way that's as if they were made as one.

Once Upon a Time in America seems like a standdard score except for some instances, but that's not enough.
It's very atmospheric, but not Morricone atmospheric besides few parts here and there.

I must admit I liked all the music in OUATIA,

would love to have seen a night singer performing

"It had to be you"

hehehe... Priscilla Lane in Roaring Twenties anyone?
