Personnel[edit]

Ennio Morricone's reaction[edit]

Despite the fact that the soundtrack was acclaimed by critics,[23] Ennio Morricone, who composed a brand new song for Django Unchained, stated that Tarantino used the music “without coherence” and he "wouldn’t like to work with him again, on anything".[24] That was the first collaboration between the Italian composer and the American filmmaker, even though Tarantino had used Morricone's music in Kill Bill, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Ennio Morricone quickly released a statement clarifying that his remarks were taken out of context,[25] Morricone said that he has "great respect for Tarantino" and that he is "glad he chooses my music"[26] Morricone also said that because Tarantino chooses his music "it is a sign of artistic brotherhood"[27][28]
