This collection of film études I'd grade...
Visconti's piece - boring and derivative.
Bolognini's piece - short, but nice and sharp.

De Sica's piece - short, focused, insightful.
Rossi's piece - not too bad, pushing over the edge in a way.
Aaah and there's Clint Eastwood starring in the last piece :)
