Pinhole Movie Reviews


Boccaccio ’70 by tincolor

Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren! It’s just about every Italian star and director from the 60s all come together for one fantastical film about modern love and lust. Split into four shorter segments, this three-and-a-half hour epic is probably more Italiano than the average viewer is able to mango in una sitting. For me, the first segment is by far the best. It’s pure Italian neorealism and it’s perfect. The other segments are each entertaining in their own way, but they feel more like vignettes than fully fleshed out stories. The first segment is absolutely worth watching and if you’re going to start, you might as well watch all the way through the end.
