  1. manuelveigas's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

  2. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    impressive, but even in its recreation there’s a distance i found difficult to work with.

  3. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

  4. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    He is a master at this early stage of his career. Subtly expressive camerawork always at the service of the story.

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    This is a masterpiece of Italian cinema. Francesco Rosi not only captures the essence of the man Salvatore Giuliano but also the country he inhabited and fought for and the politics that muddle it. With exceptional cinematography this historical epic evokes Citizen Kane in its tone and predicts the Battle of Algiers. Whether you know the history or not, you can't deny the mastery of the filmmaking.

  7. Aardsy's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

  8. film_lies101's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    The structure may not be original, the content is downright revolutionary

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Firstly, there's Sicily with its rocks, its heat, its poverty and its white villages. Then, there are Sicilians, women in black, shepherds dressed in rags, opportunistic Mafia Dons and corrupted police officials. At last, there's Salvatore Giuliano. He's the main character of the film but we only see him dead. A brilliant idea. Masterpiece.

  10. dionysus67's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Combining with admirable astuteness politics, epistemology (the construction of truth) and sociology (of the Sicilian stratification), Rosi's neorealist motifs are transferred to a formal language of stasis (an influence on Angelopoulos) with a circular narrative of regress: the initial frame of Giuliano is now occupied by the mafioso. With a stunning Pasolinian mourning scene, it's a monumental film about truth.

  11. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Interesting neo-realistic, quasi-documentary film with notable editing. But did it deserve the Best Director award at Berlin over Bergman's "Through a glass darkly"? The Swedish film was markedly superior. Scorsese likes it because he can identify with the Italian politics and sociology of that time. The Rosi film is good but overrated.

  12. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Incontestable chef-d'oeuvre du Septième Art, entre "documentaire" implacable, excellent film politique et imparable leçon de cinéma, qui confirme un réalisateur transalpin devenu désormais incontournable... www.cinefiches.com

  14. Emil Kurjak's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

  15. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Being honest here, I couldn't quite follow the film, but was carried along by its energy. Would be worth revisiting with some research in hand.

  16. HSBilly's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    it set around people who involved with salvatore giulano, and here, giulano shown as corpse and offscreen ghost. great decision.

  17. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    La muerte de Salvatore Giuliano como excusa para realizar una radiografía social. La Silicia a mediados de los 40 como espacio en conflicto. La mafia, la policía y los militares como agrupaciones reconociéndose en un medio traidor y oportunista. Hay una reflexión sobre la impunidad de los lugareños, víctimas de las cacerías a los bandoleros, quienes empezaron como políticos radicales y terminaron como delincuentes.

  18. Dignan's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    The trial scenes are well shot.

  19. Giulia Galbarini's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    The cinematographer was Gianni Di Venanzo, who shot many of the greatest Italian pictures of the ’50s and ’60s, including Antonioni’s L‘eclisse and Fellini’s 8½.

  20. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    Excellent exposé of political corruption revealed by the investigation into the death of the titular bandit Salvatore Giuliano.

  21. nital kalen's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    police, soldier, mafia, and politics casting performance very good

  22. Silenzio's rating of the film Salvatore Giuliano

    I think all political films should be measured against this one. The structure is superb as the facts are presented almost like newspaper articles but the film always remains extremely cinematically intriguing. A masterpiece
