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.
