I watched Rome, Open City by director Roberto Rossellini tonight. I thought it was very powerful, and sad, another reminder of mankind's cruelty: hooray!
I watched it as part of a little project I've set for myself to see at least one movie by all 100 top directors at the
They Shoot Picture's Don't They? site. When I started this project, I had 25 director's films to see; with Rossellini out of the way, I've got 14 left:
- von Stroheim
- Hsiao-Hsien Hou
I've been putting holds on DVDs at the library - it's been very effective, and a nice way to spend part of my summer.
