U Turn (Blu-ray)
Highly Recommended The Movie: I saw Oliver Stone's U Turn in a movie theater when it came out in the fall of 1997, and then promptly forgot it. It struck me then as unnecessarily in-your-face and stylistically nutso, like Stone had arbitrarily taken the semi-psychedelic, everything-goes aesthetic of 1994's Natural Born Killers and thoughtlessly applied it to a poor, unsuspecting neo-noir story ...

Resolved Question: Does film composer Ennio
I imagine he'd know a few, including Latin, considering his line of work, but I honestly can't find an answer anywhere. This is mostly just a matter of curiosity for me and a bit of wish fulfillment. He's my favorite composer and I've always wanted to meet him (well, since I discovered him) and I still do before he dies. He's in his early eighties now, so I'm presuming he can't have too much time left in him even if he is still working. But if I met him and he didn't speak English, it would be well...problematic. He (or I) could have an interpreter, but it just wouldn't be quite the same.
I've never heard him speak except for at the 2007 Oscars where he was presented an Honorary Oscar; he spoke Italian on that occasion. It was made into a joke, but I don't have any idea of whether or not he really CAN speak English (or anything else).
So...go at it, I guess. Bonus points for clips, I suppose. Thanks! I can't figure out a way to directly respond to specific answers given, so I guess I have to use this.
I honestly don't have a problem with him not speaking English. I knew that may Europeans were multilingual, although I had never hears about people not wanting to speak English (or any other language) before. I suppose it was just a comment made out of ignorance of the matter. See, I unfortunately don't speak any other languages, and the idea of studying Italian (even though I actually DO want to for a variety of reasons) is...rather daunting, especially considering the whole brain-solidifying-after-a-certain-age-making-one-unable-to-achieve-native-fluency thing (or so I've been told). And if I DID know Italian, I'd have no problem whatsoever switching to it to talk to him. I suppose I figured others would feel the same about their own languages, silly as that may be.
The point I was making was that I'd rather not need an interpreter involved so I could talk directly to him (and vic
