While it is a film full of mysteries, the central mystery for me is why Bertolucci made it. That mystery, alas, tends to supersede all the others… I don’t mean to suggest that The Sheltering Sky is a movie devoid of serious meaning and interest. On the contrary, it’s probably Bertolucci’s most erotic and sensual movie since Last Tango in Paris, shot so gorgeously by Vittorio Storaro that it’s worth seeing for its views of deserts, markets, and North African alleys alone.
