Il conformista

Bernardo Bertolucci Itali, 1970

tidal waif's rating of the film The Conformist

such a waste of time. why attempt carve the rushmore with the spoon? for the sake of it. that is what bertoluuci does in this movie. all the mobilised efforts fall somewhere in a void where useless spectacle strides in an airless aquarium. less unbearable than novecento though.
