Ennio Morricone, the legendary Italian composer, scored ‘The Hateful Eight’ in 2015. This was a great project for Morricone as it was not only his first Western film in almost forty years, but it also helped him win his first Academy Award. However, despite this huge project, Morricone was not particularly happy working with Tarantino nor did he have any fun at the Oscars.

In a recent interview that was published with Playboy Germany, Morricone was criticizing Tarantino for his chaotic style of work.  He said,

He talks without thinking, he does everything at the last minute. He has no idea. He calls up out of the blue and wants a complete score in just a few days. That’s not possible. It makes me so mad.

Morricone was reportedly asked to score ‘Inglourious Basterds’ before ‘The Hateful Night, but he declined due to the short production schedule of the film. Since then, Tarantino has been lambasted by Morricone as “a cretin” who steals the work of others and puts it in a different manner.

Morricone feels that Tarantino’s works are not original and he shouldn’t even be called a director. He simply remakes from the old and is nothing when compared to great achievers of Hollywood including Billy Wilder, John Huston and Alfred Hitchcock. All his movies are trash.

Ennio Morricone and Quentin Tarantino

When it came to Oscars, Morricone said,

I was in pain from sitting down for so long, on the plane and at the ceremony. If I looked happy it was because I knew I would soon be getting away from that boring ceremony.

Morricone doesn’t wish to return to the U.S. as it is full of pomposity and embarrassments including the Oscars. Tarantino has not yet decided his next film’s composer, but he has hopes that Morricone will join them for ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’.
