Italian Masters Marathon
« on: October 29, 2006, 12:24:46 PM »
Think about how good it could be. Visconti, Bertollucci, and Fellini, along with Pietro Germi and even some Sergio Leone. 8 1/2, Knights of Cabiria, The Leopard, Divorce Italian Style, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, and more. It would be a great marathon.

Have they seen "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" yet? They haven't mentioned any Leone films since the western marathon except for briefly mentioning that they still haven't seen "Once Upon a Time in the West"

I would DEFINITELY be interested in this. Ever since I watched "La Dolce Vita" and "La Note Bianche", I have been hooked.

They may have already seen them, but I'd be very curious to hear Sam and Adam talk about La Dolce Vita and The Bicycle Thief.  I've just seen both recently, and while there are some flaws, but are interesting works of art. 

Cheers!
