It's nothing compared to the real Hollywood directors like John Huston, Alfred Hitchcock or Billy Wilder. They were great. Tarantino only cooks old recipes".
The legendary master behind the soundtracks of Good, bad and ugly e There was once in the west He continues, even according to IndieWire, that he does not like Tarantino films and that they are simply "shit."
Next, live the collaboration. "Call at the last minute and want a score finished a few days later. What is impossible and what makes me crazy".

He claims that he owed his Oscar and that this experience was one of the most important moments of his life. Playboy Germany has not yet reacted to Morricone's statements.
Here is your letter in English:
"It's my point that Playboy Germany came out with an article in which I called Tarantino to a cretino and I think his movie is dirt. This is totally false. He never called Tarantino a cretino and surely does not consider his movie junk.
I think that Tarantino is a great director. I am very affected by my collaboration with him and the relationship we develop during the time we spend together. He is brave and has a huge personality. I certify is one of the people responsible for making me an Oscar, which is one of the greatest recognitions of my career, and I am always grateful for the opportunity to compose music for his film.
In London, during a talk in front of Tarantino, I clearly stated that I consider Quentin as one of the great directors of this moment.
