Thread: Necropolis (Franco Brocani, 1970)

  1. #1

    Necropolis (Franco Brocani, 1970)

    Coming soon (May 22) on English-friendly DVD.

    Time Out Film Guide:
    "Brocani conjures together all your favorite European cultural and historical myth figures in order to attack the centuries of 'sublimation' that have produced our cities and their inhabitants. The gang's all here: Frankenstein's monster gropes towards the awareness that his mind is a universe; Attila, naked on a white horse, liberates his people from their ignominy; the ultra-caustic Viva bemoans the frustrations of married life and drifts into the elegiac persona of the Bloody Countess Bathory; Louis Waldon is a hip American tourist searching for the (missing) Mona Lisa. The range is extraordinary, from stand-up Jewish comedy to a kind of flea-market expressionism."

    Thanks for the heads-up, this sounds quite bizarre.

    I've never seen this. Is this an Italian DVD, Vizzini?

    Drunk 1970's avant-garde existential socialist ramblings about historical and cultural monsters and filmmakers like Truffaut and Kenneth Anger? Sure, why not. I'm in.

    This feels like something Criterion would be all over. Does it not?
