Italian Composer Morricone Slams Tarantino, Django Unchained

Ennio Morricone, the prolific Italian composer and conductor who has written many of the most recognisable film scores in history, says he will never again work with director Quentin Tarantino because he places music in his films without coherence.

Morricone’s work most recently appeared in Tarantino’s Django Unchained, the homage to the Spaghetti Western genre Morricone help popularise in the 1960s with classics including The Good The Bad and the Ugly (1966) and A Fistful of Dollars (1964), both directed by Sergio Leone.

Morricone also wrote most of the award-winning soundtrack for Leone’s epic Once Upon a Time in America.

The Django Unchanged soundtrack included Morricone’s Ancora Qui, sung by Elisa Toffoli, along with three short Morricone instrumental pieces.

Morricone and Tarantino actively worked together on Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino’s 2009 reinterpretation of the end of World War II, and on both instalments of the Kill Bill franchise — via
