Pier Paolo Pasolini interviews various Italians about their attitudes towards sexuality and marriage/divorce in this curious time capsule documentary. With the interview subjects ranging in both age and social standing, the assorted responses are remarkable if not exactly surprising. The project seldom rises above being a standard talking heads documentary though and the relatively simple structure (ask questions; film answers) leads to it feeling repetitive.

Frequently cited as an Alien rip-off, this Italian thriller is actually very much its own film - but it is not the better for it. The chief similarity lies in stomachs exploding a la the chestbuster in Alien, but whereas as the Ridley Scott classic is set on a claustrophobic space station with a Xenomorph on the loose, the action here takes place on Earth with the big menace being inanimate eggs. They look creepy... but menacing? They got nuttin' on Xenomorphs.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

7. We All Loved Each Other So Much (Scola, 1974). This was a nice warm human story of postwar Italy and the disillusionment that three partisan friends experience as they return to civilian life. Some funny moments here and there, punctuated by moments of poignancy. Fellini, Mastroianni and de Sica all cameo as themselves in the later part of the movie. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075793/

Opening with the main character nonchalantly putting a corpse through a meat grinder and feeding the produce to his pet pigs, this Lucio Fulci movie is very out-there from the get-go. Things only become more offbeat as he goes on to converse with himself (through tape recordings - or maybe his shadow?) and get into philosophical quagmires about killing and disposing of bodies. Alas, after this strong start, the film soon grows repetitive. And annoying.

13. Starblack (1966, Giovanni Grimaldi) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0222396/: 5.5 - Starblack compared to other Italian Westerns of its era is much more like a classic Western than a spaghetti Western due to its colorful production design, simple plot and straightforward direction. Its dime-store plot and masked avenging hero gives the movie a charm that's reminiscent of old serial or 1950s boy's comic books. It's so tongue-in-cheek it almost plays as avant-garde popart project. While its charm increase the watchability the movie still suffers from mediocrity on all levels.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

8. The Passenger (Antonioni, 1975). This was... profound. I feel like I can't quite digest it yet, but I connected with this movie in a way I rarely do. It's hard to explain but it felt true despite obviously not being so. And yet I'm missing one piece of the puzzle to make it all fit together. Perhaps it'll come to me later. I'd like to see this again soon. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073580/

This weird slasher is partly a teenybopper comedy, partially a giallo variant with some really gruesome kills, and additionally a biker movie with the execution of a bikie early into the film that may or may not have something to do with the killing spree. Placed in a blender together, all of these elements do not really sit that well beside each other. The creative kills (especially a mouth electrocution) keep things chugging along, but the teens just annoying.

Notable for featuring Claudia Cardinale in one of her first leading roles, she is expectedly solid here - as is Jacques Perrin playing the teen protagonist. As a character study though, this always feels a little lacking. Perrin comes across as incredibly naïve, consoling his local priest for advice regarding whether or not to help Cardinale. And yet, the film never coalesces into really being about his blind trust in religion or Christian charity causing more harm than good.

This late career Lucio Fulci offering gets off to a strong start with a graphic child stabbing in a nightmarish pre-credits scene. For the most part though, this is not a horror movie despite a scattering of horrific effects (eyeballs in food; low camera angles on walking corpses). Rather, this is a whodunit crossed with something much more mystical (and silly) as the daughter of a murdered man has visions of her father telling her to solve his murder.

On second viewing, I had no need to nworry about the strange, rather weak, mystery of the identity of the mastermind of the crime, and could appreciate the almost as strange spectacle of Pier Paolo Capponi as a detective playing good cop/bad cop with himself. Enjoyable and odd.

14. Sette orchidee macchiate di rosso [Seven Blood-Stained Orchids] (1972, Umberto Lenzi) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067696/: 7.0

15. Milano odia: la polizia non può sparare [Almost Human] (1974, Umberto Lenzi) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071840/ : 7.5 - An poliziotteschi that stands out from the crowd, cause it don't beat around the bush about depicting how absolutely despicable its criminal protagonist is.

16. Tony Arzenta (BIg Guns) (1973, Duccio Tessari) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069013/: 7.2 This stylish poliziotteschi stars Alain Delon as a maffia hitman, who wants out of the game. His bosses aren't happy this.. after a failed assassination attempt on his life that leaves his wife and kid death Delon sets out for revenge. It benefits from some very good direction with very stylish set pieces. Stand out is a hit scene in a train, that is Bava-esque in its use of colors. But the movie loses momentum at times in the plotforwarding sequences in between. Its nihilistic finish leaves a lasting impression.

17. Zorro (1975, Duccio Tessari) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072448/; 6.5 - Alain Delon is Zorro in this enjoyable family friendly adventure-action movie.

There are some very graphic bits and pieces here, including fishing hooks in a face and a dream of being pecked to death, but the mystery aspect here is never milked for all that it is worth. An initial scene set in the 1970s too heavily clues us into what is happening in the present-day timeline while director Michele Soavi seems more interested the comedic potential of the material than the horror possibilities. At its most bizarre, a pet rabbit channel surfs TV.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

8. The Players (2020) * 89 min.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10168672/

A sex comedy consisting of an anthology of brief episodes about cheating husbands, ranging from realistic drama to extremely unpleasant situations. The best story involves a wife interrogating her husband about his infidelity after their friend boasts about his, a realistic look at the common double standard. Mostly the punch lines seem not really worth the time that it took to get there, or the stories are cruel and not at all amusing.
