United States, 1999 (180 minutes). Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Cast: Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards, John C. Reilly, Melora Walters, Philip Seymour Hoffman.
An unusual portrait of several parallel stories with inner anguish and the search for forgiveness as narrative engines. The film, as innovative as it is amazing, hides multiple readings and dissects a cast of characters that oscillate halfway between the pathetic and the moving. A masterful lesson in cinema, combining a screenplay of mind-blowing perfection, lavish and precise staging and a series of performances, each more stunning.

you upset him France-Austria. 2001 (130 minutes). Directed by Michael Haneke. Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Benôit Magimel, Annie Girardot, Susanne Lothar.
The mere name of Michael Haneke both shocks and terrifies many fans: he set the screen on fire with his reflection on violence in The Benny Video; he stirred stomachs and consciences with unspeakable merry games; and filmed in Unknown Code the clearest reflection on the intolerance that lives under Europe’s skin. In The Pianist, she goes even further: an overwhelming Isabelle Huppert is a grumpy piano teacher who is strangled by a smothering mother; in him beats the torment that he can only combat with physical and mental self-mutilation. Few times has the tragedy of a film character reached such a level of abstraction, and few films have so gruesomely portrayed the moral collapse of a monstrous society. The Pianist is a subversive and nihilistic work that will crush any viewer’s defenses.

Shane. USA, 1953 (113 minutes). Director: George Stevens; Cast: Alan Ladd, Jean Arthur, Van Heflin.
Few Westerns have played with the mythical genre like Deep Roots. The film that canonizes the character of the gunman with a dark past, whose revolver is always at the service of the weakest. George Stevens traces the story with extraordinary depth, blending the luminosity of the open spaces with the chiaroscuro of the interiors, right up to the legendary final sequence, in which the duel between Shane and the villain Jack Wilson, the black-gloved gunslinger, explodes. Deep Roots is an example of classic cinema that always offers the viewer new impressions.

‘The good, the bad and the ugly’
Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo. Italy, 1966 (152 minutes). Director: Sergio leon Cast: Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach, Lee Van Cleef.
The most interesting of the films in Leone’s spaghetti western trilogy, which doesn’t mean it’s a well-rounded work, but does mean it’s the one with the best constructed script. Eastwood displays all his charisma, but the production remains crude and gimmicky. Too much zoom to tell clearly, even more so in a western story.
