The Conformist (1970)
Italo: A normal man? For me, a normal man is onewho turns his head to see a beautiful woman's bottom.The point is not just to turn your head.There are five or six reasons.And he is glad to find people who are like him, his equals.That's why he likes crowded beaches,football, the bar downtown.Marcello: At Piazza Venice.Italo: He likes people similar to himself and does not trustthose who are different. That's why a normal man isa true brother, a true citizen, a true patriot...Marcello: A true fascist.
Thanks to here for alerting me to the fact that Bernardo Bertolucci's The Conformist, one of the greatest and most influential films ever made (and a personal favorite) was released on this day 45 years ago. If you've never gotten the chance to see this astonishingly beautiful film on a big screen do whatever it takes, up to and including genocide (that would be ironic!), to make that happen. It will blow your eyeballs out of the back of your head and also manage to be totally worth having eyeballs in the back of your head after that. It's that good!
