Il conformista

Bernardo Bertolucci Italia, 1970

Beaty Reynolds's rating of the film Fascisten

One of a handful of films that (in my opinion) might even eclipse the power of the novel on which they are based--and that is saying something given that it is Moravia's masterpiece. I have watched this film at least a dozen times since the early 70s, when I saw it at a university screening. One of the most beautiful films ever made, and also one of the most shattering.
