Christianity, profanity, European and American history, Holocaust, fiction, classics, terrible films and even random fantasy movies (BELIEVE IT OR NOT!). You can find this and other stuff among the titles that my school teachers decided to show me. I am still trying to figure out why “Highlander” (1986) was a must-see, though.

Missing on MUBI (also in chonological order of screening):

- “La Mandragola” (1965), by Alberto Lattuada;
- “The Last Days” (1998), by James Moll;
- Episode #1.1 (“The Ancestors”) from the TV mini-series “500 Nations” (1995), written by W.T. Morgan and John Pohl, directed by Jack Leustig.

PLEASE NOTE: even if programmed and discussed, eventually “Mission” (1986) and “The Last Temptation of Christ” (1988) were not shown to me and my classmates (due to the short time we had for such activities).

Above: “Giordano Bruno” (1973), by Giuliano Montaldo.
