Ennio Morricone / Re: Ennio (2021)

By teacher of his youth you mean Goffredo Petrassi? If that is the case, what is so strange about it? Have you any idea about who Petrassi was?

Yes it was Petrassi. I don?t mean it in a strange way at all. I am just stating some of my takeaways from the movie. How a distinguished and accomplished composer in his 80?s was still trying to live up to what his teacher would approve, and still felt that connection after all these years. I did not mean that negatively at all.

I saw the movie on TCM.

So Ennio was deeply emotional, still heavily admires the teacher of his youth, and (if not his entire life, for much of it) was somewhat embarrassed that his career was as a film composer

So . . . we're all coming over for a double feature of Ennio and OUATITW in UHD, right? Are you gonna serve brisket too?

The wife indeed made pulled beef brisket the other day  ;)

I just saw the movie again -- I'm introducing the wife to "old movies" so going on a run of all the classics now.

The DVD is terrible -- not sure if I ever noticed it before, or if it's worse on my 65" 4K TV than it looked on my old smaller TV. Anyway, I just ordered the BRD, which came out in 2021, and online reviews say looks good. Of course, it may come out on UHD before I ever even get to see this BRD ....

If you get a uhd player, get one that is region-free. It will cost more but you can play anything on it. Any uhd, brd, or dvd from any region.

 ::) ::)That last paragraph

?Note that this disc would not play on my reference Panasonic DP-UB9000, which marks yet another Paramount UHD disc that refuses to play on this otherwise reliable machine. Playback was instead through an old backup Oppo UDP-203 player.?

could be a dealbreaker for me. I have a SONY (region-free) UHD player. If it doesn?t play on that ? and how can I know if it will? ? this is of no use to me.

I?ll probably get it anyway, just cuz I am a Leone completist  ::) Then I?ll get the next one in a few years ?.

$38.20. I don't usually do math problems, but for you I made an exception.

Thanks. What would I do without you?

I just took a closer look. It seems the more expensive one is from Europe and includes  "six art cards, a collectible "Morton" train sign and a vintage fold out photograph of the rail road."

Looks like it's either sold out or not available yet on

In France it's 70 euros

Ok n_l, I did some searching and found your review

Do you really think this movie was about collaboration and entrepreneurship, rather than a way to look at piss all over Hollywood (and California and society) of the 1930?s?

I don?t know who really wrote CK. But this movie is not really all that much about who wrote CK. It shows as fact that HM wrote it and OW didn?t. Snore. The meat of the story really is in all the flashbacks. About the evil reactionaries vs. the principled idealist Commie. Snore.

I just saw the movie

Did not like it very much. But I am interested to know what n_l thought of it, since he  made a bunch of posts before he saw it and none afterward
