Il conformista

Bernardo Bertolucci Italia, 1970

josé neves's rating of the film Fascisten

DCP, Cineteca di Bologna's digital restoration, rewatched,re-rating. A bit of personal history: at age 19, this film and Bertolucci were my nec plus ultra-the beginnings of cinephilia can carry indefinable shame-, and this film held a very special place. Now, in spite of some brilliant moments- brilliance is intrinsic to it -, and some good scenes, stand out, above all, a heavy and demonstrative formalism for praise.
