Ennio Morricone / Talkshow: E. Morricone [1-16-2005 video]
« on: February 22, 2005, 09:40:02 AM »
This is a videoclip by an italian Talkshow in which Morricone talks about  chess, music, his last work and S. Leone, referring to the way  he composed for his films.

Language is italian and if someone helps me I  could try to translate some  part.... don't know if someone may be interested to  .. anyway I post the link,9106,14080,00.html

He talks about Leone near the middle part of the clip
You need Real Player to see it!

General Discussion / A little question
« on: April 29, 2004, 11:48:49 AM »
I found this comment about "My name is nobody" on, and I wonder " which
 is the name on the cross?????

"" "My name is nobody" There are a number of comic scenes scattered throughout the film that make it worthwhile, but my favourite bit is where Nobody is talking to Beauregard in the cemetery and he walks along reading names off the crosses. One of names is that of a certain very well known director of violent movies, the implication being that his time is over, perhaps?......""

I don' remenber this scene well,  is the name on the cross "Sergio Leone" ?

General Discussion / An interview
« on: April 27, 2004, 02:47:54 AM »
I have found this interview to Leone (in Italian) at this link:

, and I have tried translate it, but only the first question at the moment:

Which is your way to see the things concerning the cinema?
Leone:- The cinema has to be show, the public wants this.  And for me the most beautiful show is that one of the myth.  The cinema is myth.  Then, behind this show, you can suggest  all what you want:  the present time, politics, social critic, ideology.  But you must make it without to impose, without to act dishonestly, without to obligate people to endure.  There's  the show and then, in second struck, if one wants he can also  find the reflection. It is a lot more honest to work in this way, as an example to introduce politics  in this way, than not to expect to say the truth at all costs. It's just when it is believed to say the truth (and therefore to represent the reality objective ) that you say the greatest lies. There Are films directed from directors "of left" (politically) who are true reactionary apologies, and viceversa.  in conclusion, the cinema is fantasy and this fantasy, for being truly complete, must have a thickness.

Qual è il suo modo di vedere le cose a proposito del cinema?

Leone:- Il cinema dev'essere spettacolo, e' questo che il pubblico vuole. E per me lo spettacolo piu' bello e' quello del mito. Il cinema e' mito. Poi, dietro questo spettacolo, si puo' suggerire tutto quello che si vuole: attualita', politica, critica sociale, ideologia. Ma bisogna farlo senza imporre, senza prevaricare, senza obbligare la gente a subire. C'e' lo spettacolo e poi, in seconda battuta, se uno vuole puo' anche trovare la riflessione. E' molto piu' onesto lavorare cosi', presentare ad esempio la politica in questo modo, che non pretendere di dire la verita' a tutti i costi. E' proprio quando si crede di dire la verita' (e quindi di rappresentare oggettivamente la realta') che si dicono le piu' grandi bugie. Ci sono film diretti da registi di sinistra che sono veri e propri apologhi reazionari, e viceversa. Insomma, il cinema e' fantasia e questa fantasia, per essere veramente completa, deve avere uno spessore.

General Discussion / The word END to the "Spaghetti Western"
« on: April 11, 2004, 06:05:12 AM »
The critics, in italy (i think all over europe), agree in saying that this film put the word END to the "Spaghetti Western" genre according to the style of Sergio Leone:


Italian: Lo Chiamavano Trinità
English: They call me Trinity
German: Die rechte und die linke Hand des Teufels
Hungarian: Az ördög jobb és bal keze
French: On l'appelle Trinita
Danish: De kalder mig Trinity
Finnish: Trinity...paholaisen oikea käsi
Spanish: Me Llamaban Trinidad (Trinity)
Swedish: De kallar mig Trinity - djävulens högra hand

Are the critics  of the same opinion also in the rest of the world?

General Discussion / References to Leone on TV
« on: April 10, 2004, 05:15:17 AM »
in my country there are a lot of references to Leone's films on TV. For istance in a daily poupular tv program about food, there's a  duel between two cooks and in background you can listen to the GBU music theme.
Then there's a progam  entitled "For a fistful of books"
...ah...don't  forget, the last  Metallica tour (first date in europe, if i'm not wrong)  is started with the Morricone score "The ecstacy of gold" ;)

in your country, which is the situation?
