Difference of Opinion

La Rabbia (1963) aka The Anger
Dir - Pier Paolo Pasolini & Giovanni Guareschi

This is an odd documentary where from the early 60s by two Italian filmmakers who tackle the question "why are our lives characterized by discontent, anguish and fear?" from their own viewpoint. Pasolini is more left and Guareschi is staunchly rightwing making for some interesting but frustrating times. No new footage was shot, the two directors cut together newsreel footage with their own narration being read as it shows. Great technique and interesting concept but gets a tad boring at times and my limited knowledge of Italian/European post-war figures, at least by sight, doesn't help.

Full review coming soon on Freakin' Awesome
