The Conformist: What Movies Can Be

what an awesome flick

The Cinecultist begs you. If you live in the New York area and can make it down to the Film Forum between now and next Thursday, August 11, please please please go see Bernardo Bertolucci's 1970 movie about fascist Italy, The Conformist. It will remind you all the amazing, gorgeous, stirring, sexy, sad, surreal ways that the movies can be. And it's a great looking print, to boot.
