On this episode of Exposure Time, we preview the documentary, Ennio, a retrospective look at the work of master film composer, Ennio Morricone.......... sorry I got lost thinking of the sweeping beauty that is the theme to One Upon a Time in the West. Well, at this point, might as well save all of the gushing, flowery language, and superlatives for the episode. It's a good one.

2023 was maybe our most surprising year yet! Little did we know we would discover a specific theme and boy do we have a lot to say about it. Joe and Graham sit down to chat their favorite new releases for the year, favorite first time watches, and get a little unfocused. Which was actually perfect because it let topics such as physical media, theater viewings and a while lot more bubble to the surface.
