Best Films - 1970

Il Conformista a.k.a. The Conformist (1970) directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Stefania Sandrelli, Dominique Sanda
Quite possibly Bernardo Bertolucci's best film, Il Conformista / The Conformist is a first-rate psychological thriller that associates fascistic tendencies with repressed sexuality. Politicians everywhere should take a good look at it. Bertolucci, who also wrote the screenplay from a Alberto Moravia novel, focuses on the story of a Fascist-in-the-making, brilliantly played by Jean-Louis Trintignant, whose lust for power and control has its roots in his totally suppressed homosexuality.
