Burn! (Quemada) Ennio Morricone, Gillo Pontecorvo

June 24th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Pontecorvo’s follow-up to Battle of Algiers is another scathing depiction of war profiteers and colonialism at its worst. Morricone’s score sounds a lot like the African Mass songs (Missa Luba, Kyrie) used in Lindsay Anderson’s If… a few years prior, only Morricone’s score has a killer psyche organ line, cinematic strings, and some interesting Carribean drum rhythms. These tracks were transferred from the original vinyl soundtrack.

    I saw the film Burn when I was a young man and subsequently learned about the real life of the crazed nurderer William Walker. He was eventually executed (good). I grew up to help in organizing against mercenaries across the globe.

    My understanding is that Marlon Brando said Burn! was the only film he ever acted in that he was proud of. A truly amazing film that few people have heard of.

    a truly gripping musical score that served as a wonderful prelude to a terrifically masterful piece of acting by brando

    A truly magnificent film that brings out the best in Brando and Morricone. It deserves more.
