5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy but far from dull, 27 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Conformist (Dual Format Edition) [DVD + Blu-ray] [1970] (Blu-ray)
This was a great and pleasant surprise for me. I was expecting a hard going, possibly rewarding, art flick but instead I sat agog at a visually beautiful, thought provoking and suspenseful movie - one I immediately wanted to see again. Literally every scene here is stunning - there is no way you can be bored watching this film unless you have no aesthetic sensibilities whatsoever. It's not just prettiness though, the story of a shallow, damaged human being gratefully embracing facism rings true and builds to a scene of genuine horror (this may be just me, but some scenes reminded me of the giallo homage Amer and, weirdly, this isn't that far from the best of 70s Italian horror in its look and style, although, of course, it was Bertolucci who was being imitated by these lesser talents). The blu ray quality is first class and the commentary is excellent. I highly recommend this release to all true cinema fans.
