Ermanno Olmi is a wonderful director, but this film just wasn't very... interesting.
It felt very scattered and wasn't cohesive at all. I see some faint glimmers of the interesting documentary it could have been, but this was still a let-down.
Olmi is a revolutionary. I could watch his shoe laces and I'd be satisfied. He's grossly UNDER-RATED while having such a profound affect on so many people & filmmakers alike. Scorsese could learn a lot from him if only he could be as brave and determined to reveal something about man (and himself) other than the perfunctory shallow racist cliches and violence that he continuously resorts to.
