24-year old Italian lad, MADLY in love with Cinema.
Right after the Disney classics (which I worshiped during my childhood), I began to watch – in addition to mainstream movies – many fine works by Sergio Leone, Alfred Hitchcock, Mario Monicelli, Luigi Magni, Dino Risi, the Coen brothers, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese. When I was 15, I discovered Stanley Kubrick and Federico Fellini, whose amazing masterpieces strongly influenced my idea of cinema. In recent years, a wise exploitation of many specialized books and magazines – and a smart use of such useful web tools as ‘IMDb’ and ‘MUBI’ – helped me to deepen my knowledge and to better understand what I was looking for.
If I were to write down the greatest things I have discovered since I am on ‘MUBI’ (r.i.p. ‘TheAuteurs’), they would be: Orson Welles, David Lynch, ‘Buster’ Keaton, Andrei Tarkovsky, Michelangelo Antonioni (an Italian fellow, believe it or not!), Luis Buñuel, Jean Renoir, Kenji Mizoguchi, Werner Herzog, Terrence Malick, Jacques Tati, Hayao Miyazaki, Carl Th. Dreyer, the German Expressionism (F.W. Murnau!) and the American ‘film noir’. Feel free to follow me here or to ask for my Facebook account in a private message, if you are interested.
