The Dreamers

This afternoon's film was The Dreamers, a film by Bernardo Bertolucci that didn't have subtitles. It's Bertolucci's homage to the New Wave of French cinema, and boy does it show. It's got sex, smoking, incest, smoking, Chairman Mao, firebombs, movies, riots, smoking, drinking, and sex. Holy crap was there a lot of smoking. Set in 1968, this is hardly surprising I guess; still, lots of smoking.

It was a film filled with a great deal of fantastic imagery, wonderful music, and the kind of dialog you wish you participated in during real life. Wonderfully hallucinogenic movie, but it seemed to have an unfinished ending.

Oh, and for the women - there's male full-frontal nudity. Explains the NC17 rating.
