I think this quote sums up Leone's brilliance perfectly:
 
"Sergio would discuss, not write. He would describe things very technically: first comes this shot, then the camera goes up, then moves in, and so on. Movies are not two people talking - that is theatre. The movie is the camera. Sergio could judge a script in two minutes: he would flip through it and if he saw lots of dialogue it was no good; if it had lot of descriptions then it was interesting. That is something I learned from him."

Interesting. Almost the exact same thing could be said for Hitchcock.

As the article says "a very leftwing newspaper". However it looks like they spelled it wrongly: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paese_Sera

What's ''Paesa Sera'' ?

It was the unofficial Communist Party newspaper where Argento wrote his movie reviews in the early '60's. It ceased publications in the '70's.
