When American distributers were shown this film, they said it could never sell in America, so it was doomed never to be shown in the USA. It was just too different from the typical Hollywood film. Various famous American directors were outraged and demanded that American distributers be found and that it be shown in the USA. It is considered by a major poll of critics and directors to be one of the best 100 films ever made. It is now studied by film schools to demonstrate various important film techniques that were original, but now copied throughout today’s film industry.

Masterful blend of tangible reality and moral symbolism. One of the most compelling films ever made.

If great films are made of indelible images then The Conformist is a truly astounding film. Each frame is perfectly composed, the lighting and camera angles (and the film's use of color) creating haunting moods that keep you glued to the screen even as the narrative is intentionally choppy and disorienting. Jean-Louis Trintignant is perfect; his ramrod straight back and perpetual unease give the film its disturbing mood and aura. Even when he occasionally smiles it's unnatural and a bit grotesque. The Conformist is one of the all-time great cinematic renditions of human alienation.

Beautifully filmed, highly influential. You can see the influence it had on Coppola.

A for runner to The Godfather. What does it mean to be a man in Italian society? If you think you know, then that's the death of your psych. Or the more you know, the more you realize you don't know. Interesting and methodical treatment.

Underrated classic from Bertolucci.

photography was very interesting, but found the film too dated and somewhat 'artsy'!
