I’m very much looking forward to viewing this documentary (first video) on the genius that is Ennio Morricone. At 87 he’s still going strong and is sharp as a whistle. To my mind, he’s the most Wagnerian of 20th Century composers. Beyond the Morricone-Leone collaboration only one other classic collaboration springs to mind and that’s the Herzog-Popol Vuh-(Florian Fricke) collaboration — but that’s not even a close second.
Here’s a pedestrian BBC documentary from 21 years back.
