onthewall2983’s review published on Letterboxd:
Sean Connery better have loaned his Oscar to Ennio Morricone for his part in making *that* scene so tragic and powerful. Without the music this is just a very good period piece of a crime film. It added the classic Hollywood flair to a story crying out for it in not a dissimilar way to how the then-current music of DePalma's Scarface helped shape that into the classic it has become. But for me, he's never topped this.
Forgive my webspeak here but it's appropriate. RIP to the GOAT, Maestro Morricone.
