QuoteAnna, by Albert Grifi and Massimo Sarchielli, shot mostly in 1972, holds in it every seed and secret component of the political explosion that was to come in Italy, a tout court rejection of bourgeois life, a dream that crested in the year 1977, and then was made a nightmare, on account of a repression that swept Italy. If Anna is the mother of all films about Italy in the 1970s, Anna, a pregnant, depressed, beautiful, charismatic, and drug-addicted teenager, is something like the mother of Italy in the 1970s. She gives life, and then lice, to her exploiters, who capture her on film. This movie is near-impossible to see in the U.S. So now is when you should see it. Anna was living on the streets when the filmmakers met her, but she will take up permanent residence in the minds of all who see this film. She disappeared, never to be heard from again, but you won't be able to forget her.

Quote from: wilder on March 01, 2021, 08:19:14 PMMay 11, 2021Yasuzo Masumura's Giants and Toys (1958) On blu-ray from ArrowMaking its worldwide Blu-ray debut, this lurid adaptation of the award-winning 1957 novel by Ken Kaiko is considered a landmark in Japanese film history and a key work by Yasuzo Masumura (Blind Beast, Red Angel), one of the country's most highly acclaimed directors of his generation. Its absurdist and acidly cynical take on the excesses of the media and advertising worlds recalls the work of Frank Tashlin (Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?), as it presents a garish vision of a bold new postwar Japan where traditional company values come head-to-head with American-style consumer capitalism.
