The name Morricone is synonymous with sound and cinema. The legendary composer has left an indelible mark on film history during his brief time on Earth. The Museum of Modern Art will be doing a massive retrospective of Morricone’s career, simply called ENNIO MORRICONE, running December 1, 2023 to January 10, 2024.  The retrospective includes more than 35 films, spanning his nearly 60-year career. 

With more than 17 new digital restorations as well as 35mm archival prints, from classics such as A Fistful of Dollars to his work with Pier Paolo Pasolini.

The retrospective opens  with a screening of Cinema Paradiso, written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. On Saturday, December 2, the documentary Ennio: The Maestro, also directed by Giuseppe Tornatore will be shown. The documentary was released shortly after the composer’s death in 2020.

Other works being screened include:

  • The Thing
  • Le clan des Siciliens (The Sicilian Clan)
  • Two Mules for Sister Sara
  • Once Upon a Time in America [European theatrical version]
  • Diabolik (Danger: Diabolik)
  • A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin

And more!

MoMA has a long history of showcasing Ennio Morricone’s work, with an exhibition of his films in 2007 to celebrate his first concert at Radio City Music Hall.
