I can't find the regular Morricone topic. I just read this review at Roger Ebert.com.

I really like this review. I doubt if it will be shown in movie theaters, but I hope Netflix or some other streaming service picks it up. A DVD would also be nice.

It will play in theatres! It already premiered in NYC this week at the Film Forum, and if you're in Chicago it will be playing at the Music Box Theatre next month:

This is nice to read, but I think it will only play in large cities. Those of us who live in smaller towns will probably not get to view this, but I can always hope.

Finally making it here in LA after a couple of years delay. Look up ENNIO in the Laemmle theaters site.

Yeah that's a good thread joanie, give it a read.
I have to say I thought it was brilliant film but I found it very moving - too moving - and it brought a lump in my throat many times.

I think Tornatore should turn it into an 8 part series, dig out all his original interviews and double the length lol.

Joan, if you have a care, here are my thoughts about seeing this movie last year:

So I saw this yesterday evening...and like everybody else before me, I cannot recommend this moving film enough. Fittingly, it was my first post-Corona movie that I went to see in a cinema (with, in the end, perhaps 20 other patrons).

The day before, I had watched a retrospective of the life of Pope Benedict XVI. "Ennio - The Maestro" shows a person whose personality and character traits strongly reminded of what I saw from the Pope. Apart from the consummate artist with an immense knowledge and serious work ethic, Ennio Morricone was shown and described, both in his own words and those of his long-time collaborators, as a deeply humane and humble person, with a wry sense of humour, sincere, authentic and, for lack of a better word, "sound". Perhaps their growing up and living during the same time period has something to do with this?

He was a unique composer and human being and the World could do with another, oh I dunno, five million of his kind.

I haven't watched many documentaries in a cinema, much less about a single person. This one made me laugh, cheer, cry and wistful. My exposure to Ennio Morricone's music isn't as broad or deep as for some of you; my personal highlights are getting my autograph request fulfilled by him many years ago, seeing him get an embrace from John Williams after winning the Oscar for The Hateful Eight, experiencing the man and his music in concert in Munich in 2017, and then having the chance last October to briefly visit his (unmarked) grave outside of Rome and saying thanks for his beautiful music.

If this movie is playing anywhere within an hour's driving distance, I'm beseeching you to go see it, no matter how big (or small) a fan of Morricone you are. And perhaps take someone with you. It'll be absolutely worth your time and dime.

CK smile

PS: Which music was used for the end credits crawl? 'coz I need dat!

Thank you to all the above members for your insights and information. Because the Ebert site just reviewed it two days ago, I thought it was a new documentary. I live too far from big cities to see it in a theater, so now I need to start searching for the DVD. Appreciate all of your information.

If my rapidly fading memory serves me correctly it was 'Deborah's Theme' from 'Once Upon A Time In America'

Joan I believe that the distributors plan on releasing it digitally as well (probably after the film's run here in US theatres is over), so it should be readily available within the next few months!
