PIER PAOLO PASOLINI: UN MARXISTA A NEW YORK

È a New York da dieci giorni, è venuto per il festival cinematografico, vi davano due dei suoi film. Sono proprio cu­riosa di saper se l’America piace a questo marxista con­vinto, a questo cristiano arrabbiato, insomma a Pasolini.

25 LUGLIO 1943: MONTANELLI RACCONTA LA FINE DEL DUCE

Nel luglio 1943 la caduta di Mussolini e il crollo del regime che aveva tenuto in pugno l'Italia per 21 anni rappresentarono per molti italiani la fine di un incubo. Per altri, cresciuti nel mito dell'Impero e del «genio italico», fu una tragedia.

BLADE RUNNER: REVIEW BY PAULINE KAEL

Blade Runner doesn’t engage you directly; it forces passivity on you. It sets you down in this lopsided maze of a city, with its post-human feeling, and keeps you persuaded that something bad is about to happen.
