Not pointless at all., 27 January 2004
Author: bradchisholm@go.com from LA

La Scorta is a wonderful film that I wish were available on DVD. If you get a chance to see it you won't be sorry. That it is not as linear, dynamic and paint by numbers as the usual Hollywood thrillers I guess is frustrating to some people, but to me it powerfully conveys the ambiguity of power and that terror is more frightening when its source is unclear.

La Scorta is a naturalistic study of the problems of terror that Italy faced in the 1970's, and I think it's very well done by Mr. Tognazzi. If you were able to screen it or are just interested in the subject matter you would also probably enjoy two Francesco Rosi (originally an AD to Visconti) films: "Illustrious Corpses" (Lino Ventura) and "Tre Fratelli" (Philip Noiret, Charles Vanel) both of which deal with the complex issues of Italian terrorism. It is very interesting revisiting these films post 9/11, and it has had some effect on the industry, note the recent re-release of "Battle of Algiers" here in LA (Jan 04 - highly recommended).
