The cinetrix has been watching films and educating the young people, but she's been having difficulty carving out time to, uh, say anything about all this. Soon, my pets.
Until that blessed day, a TK teaser: Murderball and Grand Illusion, Me and You and Everyone We Know and Singin' in the Rain. Yes, it's been a veritable show with everything but Yul Brynner around here.
Plus, more on The Best of Youth and a chronicle of my pathetic attempts to get that long, enveloping movie feeling back.
But for now, I leave you with a couple of fact-checking errors from AO "Call me Book-Writin' Tony" Scott's review of The Best of Youth:
In the montage of newspaper images that introduces Part 1, the major symbol of this change is television, and one of the first things we see as the story begins is a boxy old set being hauled up the stairs of a Rome apartment building.
Or, you know, down the stairs and then lashed to the roof of a tiny car. Whatevs.
These values are embodied first by the elder Caratis, and then, in the next generation, by Nicola and his older sister, Adriana (Adriana Asti), a magistrate.
Also known as Giovanna (Lidia Vitale). Adriana Asti plays Mamma Carati.
