    Il signor Diavolo

    ★★

    ...I have a certain interest in the supernatural and so I watched very carefully "Il signor Diavolo", latest film of Pupi Avati, who also has a long familiarity with the supernatural with a strong demonic tendency which he calls Padan Gothic...

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★★

    Today is the 40th Anniversary of Apocalypse Now!
    "...Kurtz, who fights a total, absolute war, with no rules and no laws is the real face of war, while others fighting the same war with the same systems cloak it with a veil of hypocrisy calling it the sense of freedom, democracy of people, democratic rebellion, self-determination, liberation, but in reality the mechanism is always the same, it is this hatred of man against man..."

  • Ace in the Hole

    Ace in the Hole

    ★★★★★

    "...when the producer asked me who I saw as leading actor, I with the biggest cheek of unconsciousness said I saw Kirk Douglas because I admired him for Ace in the Hole. Everyone looked around as if to say: success gave to the head to this little boy. But then a great producer named Marina Cicogna sent the script to the US to Kirk Douglas.
    Kirk read it and agreed to make the film..."

    Hotel Artemis

    ★★½

    "...in Greek mythology Artemis was the goddess of hunting, but she was also the protector of animals and the soteira, the savior who relieved the dolors, the wounds and the pains of human beings and in the futuristic jungle of a Los Angeles in 2028 Hotel Artemis is this armored shelter where the Nurse Jodie Foster is the savior of the metropolitan wild animals, that are the criminals..."

  • Serenity

    Serenity

    ★★½

    One of the screenwriters I most respect is definitely Steven Knight. He is the author, in fact, of two scripts that struck me for their strength and for their humanity: "Dirty Pretty Things" directed by Stephen Frears and "Eastern Promises" directed by David Cronenberg starring an extraordinary and epic Viggo Mortensen.

    Easy Rider

    ★★★

    EASY RIDER turns 50!
    I crossed America in the mythical 60s... not only in the footsteps of Walt Whitman (Captain, my Captain of Dead Poets Society) and Jack Kerouac (On the road), but above all in the footsteps of Easy Rider, the mythical film for every biker...

    Bangla

    ★★★

    Phaim Bhuiyan is a 22-year-old Italian director from Bangladesh who has an incongruous figure and looks like a kind of dark grasshopper very nice and disjointed, almost a puppet… he seems to be the first Woody Allen…

  • A Bay of Blood

    A Bay of Blood

    ★★★

    ""A Bay of Blood" is a 1971 film of the 'slasher' genre.
    It was the first in Italy and probably in the world.
    The word comes from 'slash' meaning "to hurt with a cutlass, with a knife" and defines a film genre in which a killer makes a slaughter usually in a closed environment.
    Even Dario Argento owes a lot to Mario Bava, like many others.
    I worked with Mario Bava in "A Bay of Blood" which was then called…

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    Alien turns 40!
    The cat is a testimony of small poetry inside the film, because he is a memory of the Earth and because he is also a memory of what our protagonists were and of what they would like to be again…
