the conformist at film forum

bernardo bertolucci’s “the conformist” is on screen at film forum. besides the story and everything that makes this movie on top of every list, it’s worth seeing just to realize how it was and still is one of the greatest references for people defining today’s visual surroundings.  it has inspired everyone from david lynch to steven meisel, who totally plundered every single shot of the movie. a must see! btwn us, if you’re in nyc, such a movie is better on screen by pp.
