Ennio Morricone / Re: Morricone Concert In Paris, February 4, 2014
« on: February 09, 2014, 05:44:00 PM »
I found that On earth as it is in heaven was kind like overloaded in instruments and voices. The result was confusing and chaotic. We couldn't really distinguish the voices and localize the instruments. All that resulted in a mess. Contrary to the CD where all is very clear (despite the many voices and instruments of this piece).
I was pretty far of the orchestra, wich means I had difficulty to clearly see things. And I couldn't read the subtitles of the documentary wich was frustrating.

Intelligent use of slow motion.

It's a film full of substance.

Dave, I like your theory of Jill's bath being a baptism alot.   O0

I do too. Excellent. Another element of proof that Harmonica may be an Angel. But that's a litlle of topic.

Clint Mansell forms a tandem with David Aranofsky, and it really marks.

I think both of the director and the composer must bring  real innovations. The composer needs not only to produce melodical tunes, but innovative ones. If you take GBU tune, it is remembred because it is both melodic and innovative.
A nice tune, but conventionnal, with a conventionnal orchestra, isn't enough. John Williams for example is too conventionnal I think. Danny Elfman too.

And there is the way the music is mixed with the image, if  you take Requiem for  a dream, the music isn't only used to produced emotions, but it is used as "a sound" for the action (like the screams in GBU) And the editing itself is musical(For example: the drug shooting sequence has an abstract editing wich is a sort of "refrain").

And sometime you don't know if the music is listened by the characters in the reality of the movie: during the party (In Requiem), or if it is the music of the film itself. A procedee Morricone often uses too.

And maybe the computers style of Mansell is the comtemporary counterpart of the innovative procedee Morricone used.

I don't say Morriconne has finished his career. But according to you, if he had to pass the torch, which music film composer is worth to suceed to him (as a sort of spiritual son), as talented, as innovative as him, and made scores that are immediately remembered and have a soul?

I had thought to Clint Mansell. His music has something experimental as the one of Leone.

Actually I work in the movie industry for a company called Every picture, in France.

I have worked for them as a story boarder, I did three story boards of shorts films."About Charlie", "24 IS", "Je suis un assasin" .The first and the third are listed in the site as to be in production phase.

I hope I will start a short film with them next year as a director. It will be my first film. They have the scenario, and the producer said me, I could call him as soon as 2007 arrives.
Here is a sample of one of my personnal work:

General Discussion / Re: Ennio to be honoured at Oscars 2007
« on: December 16, 2006, 02:45:18 AM »
For Ennio, "perfect" way for the Academy to do this would be to project the ENTIRE Ecstacy of Gold sequence from GBU, then have Eli Wallach and Clint Eastwood walk out and present the Acaemy Award to Ennio.  Remember, you heard it here.

Yeah, and Eli will run over the whole place! ;D
And they mustn't forget the shovel! The shovel!

Once Upon A Time In America / Re: I didn't like this movie

My wife felt the same way but no matter. What it's all about is David, knowing what he cared for most was leaving his life probably forever, taking what he isn't able to have while feeling he earned it. Remember, "somewhere out there, Deborah lives". It's what made David able to deal with his long incarceration. Odd as it sounds, I feel the rape scene was a love scene of sorts. I know I know, violence and rape is not sexy or loving in any way. Yet still that emotion was (to me) present. I think that's so because of the way Deborah receives David in her dressing room. "Actresses have good memories" aren't words or anger or revenge. "we still have our memories...turn around, walk away"...."if you go (to the party), we won't have those anymore...". Great script writing and emotional content.
This movie has it all. Love, greed, lust, anger, friendship,'s what we're all made of.

 Do you think to force a woman who has promised to love you to keep her promise is a moral thing?

And if you love each other with the woman, then the woman goes with another guy saying she doesn't love you.
If you are still in love with the girl, don't you betray yourself to go with another woman? Are you moral to yourself, are you coherent with yourself, do you respect yourself doing that, especially if we say there is one love in life?
If you are forced to resume your love and resigns to go with another girl, don't you become like the girl who betrayed you, someone who doesn't keep his promises?
 Can you respect the others if you don't respect yourself?

Speaking about "Le dernier combat", I found many similarties between "Mad Max 3"  and the scenario of " Le dernier combat". Just a coincidence?

A courtyard in Don Tommasino's Villa.

<Michael is sitting in a chair. Many years have passed and he is now a very old man. He puts on his sunglasses and sits for a few moments before slumping down dead in his chair, an orange falls from his hand. He then topples off his chair and lies on the ground as a dog investigates.>


 Man this scene has something really amazing. We see from a very large distance that he just dies and that's it, . There is no drama, no dialogue, it is like a punctuation, it has something musical.
 I have never seen such a conclusion, plus a conclusion of a trilogy. He just falls. The scene isn't really conected to any parts of the movie, it remembers us that before being a drama it was the story of a man.

Simply because he has more money, so why no having real authencity when you have money?
Btw originally SL was not intended to take part in the project. I think the scouting of the locations were done before he landed on it, for an other director (an American, Bogdanovich) wich could exmplain the methods are different of the usual way of using Cinecitta studios.
