Yeah, I saw Sin City trailer and I have a good feeling abour the movie. Frank Miller himself was assistant to Rodriguez.

Saw recently two excelent anime: a corean one, "Wonderful days" and a japanese one, "Steamboy" from "Akira"'s author.

"My mother is Belgian, my father is Belgian, and guess what, I'm a Belgian too.

And Kermit, we have some of the finest beer here, man... "

Il Buono, allow me to say that you have THE BEST beers and not some of the finest.

I was in Brugge last week tasting some delicious Girnbergen and a "De Koninck" I think.



Regarding Pratt, he moved to Venice at 15 but his family was from Venice. Don't forget he moved to his grandmothers place when coming back from Ethiopia. It was his venitian grandmother who introduced him to freemasonry, cabala and all those "secrets". A few years after his death some italian and french magazines revealed Pratt was a freemason almost all his life.

The first shot was to be the camera making a zoom out from a room in Stalingrad through the window, we can see the building, in ruins, then as long as the camera is still doing a zoom out we can see the city and the river next to it and then the camera stops and you can see (as in the beginning of star wars episode IV) the german airplanes stuka reaching the city.

All of this with Shostacovich "Stalingrad" Symphony in the background.

This movie was extremely important in Leone's Vision.

Leone analyses "american dream" in his spaghetti westerns and in OUTA and he concludes that the american dream doesn't exist no more and that in even when it existed, in order to achieve it you had to give away all your child dreams and become a violent and evil man in a violent and evil system.

With "900 days" he wanted to explore the other "broken dream", the sovietic one, telling a love story in a terrible war background.

Leone was not communist. If you don(t believe just watch the Juan/Rod Steiger speach about revolution in DYS. Leone was more an anarchist to me. It is clear to me that he wouldn't show an optimist vision of the Soviet Union and the communist system, but a dark one.

Jean Jacques Annaud took Leone's project (he told it himself) and transformed it simply into......

Ennio Morricone / Re: Morricone/Edda del Orso
« on: May 15, 2005, 12:32:51 PM »
No, it's not Edda Dell Orso. U Turn is from 1997. Edda didn't collaborate any more with Ennio at that time.

Has anyone heard the fisrts jazzy collaborations between Morricone and Dell Orso?, they are amazing.

Well well, interesting contribution Cigar Joe. So this italian movie from the 70's "Quel Maledetto Treno Blindatto" was even called "Inglourious bastards" on the US. According to IMDB the script is the same.

I agree on Spielberg and Williams and let me include Herzog and Popol Vuh (Florian Frocke) collaboration.

General Discussion / Re: Watch in Leone 's movies
« on: May 15, 2005, 12:01:43 PM »
I think the watch is a symbol of Leone obsession with TIME. The time that passes and never comes back. The past who leaves us (and Leone caracters) with scars. How many flashbacks can we find on Leone's movies (OUTW, DYS). Isn't OUTA an opium dream about time? Wich is the present time in this movie? The 60's? Leone plays whith this idea precisely.

Not a good movie, not even a good story.

General Discussion / Re: Leone an auteur?
« on: May 15, 2005, 11:47:40 AM »
Following Michael's definition of an autheur, I would say Leone is indeed an autheur. Just an example: Leone asked Leone to write the soundtrack before the movie shooting and he played it while shooting to create the sensible mood on the set.

Let me remind you the "dead sons" scene from DYS with that haunting Morricone music.
But is DYS really a western?

An interesting point is to know if Jill's voice is Claudia Cardinale's one for real. But I think this point has already been discussed on the forum.
