Has some good info, but thought it would be better
The title of the supplement to the new GBU disk is titled in part, "Il Maestro: Ennio Morricone", but Morricone is never interviewed and never even shown in a motion clip, only in some still photos.
Where did the background sounds come from for the Morricone style? Who provided the voices in his scores? How long did it take him to work on a score? It isn't really discussed. The running time itself is kind of short, a sign that this is mostly just a rushed extra to put on the new DVD.
The background info on his classical training and avant garde style that he adopted when he started scoring films is good, but nothing would have beaten an interview with a living legend. 5/10 for a docu.
