1. The Gospel According to St. Matthew
2. Accattone
3. Teorema

4. Mamma Roma
5. The Hawks and the Sparrows

6. Salo
7. Oedipus Rex



I get what he was doing with Salo, and I respect the idea behind it, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.  I also think the acting is quite poor (which in the grand scheme of things might be a good sign).

Salo, just over Gospel. Then Mamma Roma, then Accatone. Teorema didn't do much for me at the time.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Salo has it for me by default I suppose, but I really liked it. Totally need to check out more.
