  1. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Big Night

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film The Big Night

    Among Bolignini's very best films. Rightly a reviewer likens the fascination with money's circulation -and pollution of relationships -with Pasolini's influence. Whilst not entirely free of glamorizing delinquents, it is a tight and finely acted, sturdy in its aesthetic code as it raises, unobtrusively, naturalism and realism to a semantic manifesto of non-conformist youth's vitality. Raw, evocative, iconoclastic.

  3. Sara-D's rating of the film The Big Night

  4. Stefano Pedrocchi's rating of the film The Big Night

    On the precariousness of youth and human nature

  5. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film The Big Night

  6. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Big Night

    Good looking Italian hoodrats and prostitutes run around Rome and get up to some hijinks. I'm a little surprised the Criterion Collection hasn't shown this any love.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Big Night

    A day (-and a night) in the life of several Roman hoodlums and prostitutes in the Italy of the late 50's. Bolognini and Pasolini's imaginary worlds brilliantly overlap here. If the comments on money or on natural instinct are undoubtedly Pasolini's, there are also sublime scenes, aesthetically speaking, that reveal the talent of Mauro Bolognini. Highly recommended.
