  1. Kaonashiii's rating of the film The Assassin

    Just about watched this all the way through; just not necessarily in the right order. Marcello Mastroianni has really good pyjamas.

  2. Adam Laurence Pitt's rating of the film The Assassin

  3. James's rating of the film The Assassin

    I could watch Marcello fill in his tax return. A masterful film. Get the soundtrack.

  4. DanielSpeight's rating of the film The Assassin

  5. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Assassin

    Marcello Mastroianni once again exudes effortless cool in this Elio Petri film that uses a murder investigation to peel away the character of a suave, morally ambiguous, man. He may have his flaws, but is he the killer?

  6. Thomas's rating of the film The Assassin

    I thought the narrative structure was of most interest here. The flashback storytelling gave a noir-ish feel to an otherwise rather standard plot, albeit with a knowing sense of wry satire at times.

  7. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film The Assassin

    Not-quite-but-nearly Antonioni drama starring Mastroianni in probably his best performance as a neurotic antiques dealer. Top pacing and subtext that aren't too strongly forced on the viewer, or take precedent over the entertainment.

  8. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Assassin

    Reflecting surfaces; camerawork punctiliously depicting Mastroianni amidst an environmentally degraded Rome; vivid, dishonorable remembrances indicative of one's moral failure within post-fascism Italy: Petri is attempting to grasp the nature of what ethical reckoning entails on both a social & an individual level. Though his viewpoint is dangerously close to cynicism, Petri's purpose is honorable. Where is virtue?

  9. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Assassin

    Però circa ok. ☆ e mezzo.

  14. bagno's rating of the film The Assassin

    perchè voi donne avete sempre questa febbre della chiarezza, quest'ansia della moralità?

  15. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Assassin

    First Elio Petri full-length film. Reminded me of Hitchcock's 'The Wrong Man' (1956) and Miller's 'Garde à Vue' (1981) but in the Italian tragi-comic manner. Laws are strict but personal ethics very variable and fuzzy and Mastroianni is in the middle. Recommended.

    Film italien de Elio Petri, avec Marcello Mastroianni, Micheline Presle, Cristina Gaioni, Salvo Randone, https://www.facebook.com/zyx.mhclaes/media_set?set=a.750715294984616.1073741926.100001384583310&type=3

  17. sacajawèale's rating of the film The Assassin

  18. Nancarrow's rating of the film The Assassin

    A tightly wound allegory; innocence and guilt surge much like the italian coastline. The tides one must navigate in search of a comfortable existence amongst complicated turbulence. Petri lays bare our unforeseen raging through his lens of hindsight. Superbly composed and quizzically erudite in it's observations- we can all be guilty of inhumanity.
