Marco Bellocchio Italy, 1972

dionysus67's rating of the film Slap the Monster on Page One

Another political diatribe from the radical Bellochio. With the charismatic Volonté as the motor behind the machinations between the press, the government, the corporate world and the disillusioned members of the subaltern Left, this film reveals the dirty laundry of media barons. Along with media stigmatization tactics, Bellochio exposes also romantic bourgeois ideology as naively adventurous. Essential viewing.
