One of the great larger-than-life personalities of not just Italian cinema, but world cinema, is Sergio Leone. His own unrepentantly nihilistic, ultra-violent films including “A Fistful of Dollars,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “Once Upon a Time in the West,” not only revolutionized the western genre and forever cemented Leone’s trademark visual style of epic vistas and meticulous production design punctuated by claustrophobically emotional close-ups, but helped make a superstar out of actor Clint Eastwood and Ennio Morricone as one of the most original, eclectically fluid soundtrack composers of the second half of the twentieth century.
The American Cinematheque will host a Sergio Leone retrospect at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, January 2-4.
