"L'armata Brancaleone".
A cult movie. They speak hilarious made up language of the Middle Ages. Don't know if you can appreciate it if you are not an Italian native speaker, though. Read more

Travolta, Washington, Turturro, directed by Tony Scott. Powerful pace, like a train. A remake of the 1974 film.

A comedy on rap murders and detectives with 2nd jobs! Likeable stars, but a bit of a waste. Plot? What plot?

Seeking Little Buddah and finding Siddharta between Seattle and Kathmandu. Bertolucci's nice visual touch. Feels a movie for tourists, though.

A classic of Commedia all'italiana. The American Dream as dreamt by a young Roman in the early Fifties. Some scenes are so funny!

Two cute actors in a romantic comedy. Their chemistry is lukewarm, though, and the outcome is disappointing.

Next (2007)
Too many unbelievable facts happening in the same day and in the same movie. Besides, really didn't like Cage's hair cut. Nevertheless, this Hollywood flick succeeds in being enjoyable and keeping a good pace from start to end.

Positives: Third Reich told like a Spaghetti Western!

Negatives: Third Reich told like a Spaghetti Western.

I mean: it's original and entertaining storytellng in pure Tarantino's style, but, applied to WW2 history, looks as fake as a propaganda comic book. Even worse, the plot is not as strong as it should have been... Read more

On the set of Cobra Verde. "Location Africa", AKA "Herzog in Afrika". A documentary by Steff Gruber about the great director Werner Herzog filming in Ghana with Klaus Kinski and an army of African Amazons! Not your average Hollywood-style "Making of"!

Always a pleasure watching Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason and Martin Landau on Mount Rushmore. One of all-time favorites among Hitchcock's films, "North by Northwest" comes in the middle of his "golden era" (just before "Psycho" and "The Birds", and after "Vertigo").

A clever comedy about a young man who leaves Naples and moves to Florence to start over. He doesn't start from zero, though. He starts from three, the number of the few good things he did in his life. Southern Italy's traditions meet "Northern" modernity, and new kinds of relationships between men and women... How will they interact? Memorable debut film by and with great Massimo Troisi. Loved it at the time, and still love it. Read more

As a child I was scared by dark corners, but the shadows in this fantasy thriller are not that frightening. On the contrary, the killer darkness looks a bit silly after a while. Read more

The Getaway (1994)
Alec Baldwin's presence in this remake of the 1972 heist movie is rather unimpressive. Kim Bakinger, James Woods, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Michael Madsen make the film a bit more interesting, but even so...

Has its flaws, but this faul-mouthed twist-ending high-school dark comedy starring a Wood (Evan Rachel) and a Woods (James) struck me as being so very politically-correct. Not! Yet, fresh and insightful.

Lulu the Tool (1972)
The working class goes to Heaven, as the original Italian title says. Or is it Hell? A good film about work in a factory and class struggle, where characters are real people with their lives, not just a theory.
