3. Haven't seen the movie but love Maestro Morricone!

I own a half dozen of his scores, several of which are better than the movies themselves!

5. I am continually conflicted about The Mission -- both the soundtrack and the film are outstanding.

9. Aha! That's a key one!

I'd give the edge to Morricone on that one though.
For Malena, too.

14. I hadn't know this was his first Academy Award.

Sometimes I think the best movie ever made was "Once Upon a Time in the West." Here is a scene from that.

Spoiler alert: if you have not seen the movie, do not click the link.
