Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Retrospectives, a monthly series where we pick a handful of movies tied around a specific theme, a filmmaker or an actor and have an honest chat about them. This month we are dedicating our mini-retrospective to the memory of Ennio Morricone as we talk about three movies directed by Sergio Corbucci for which he wrote music. These are Navajo Joe, The Mercenary and The Great Silence. Over the course of our sprawling conversation you will hear us talk about how Morricone’s music helped to define spaghetti western, how Corbucci brought grit and violence to the genre in a way never seen before him, how these movies use their genre templates to tell stories about modern times and much, much more!
