Paolo Sorrentino, 2013 c7.8

An exuberant fresco of Italian joie de vivre and decadence by Paolo Sorrentino, who then shot the related films Loro and Youth:

In his youth, the Roman journalist Jep wrote a legendary novel. Since then he has enjoyed the glamorous life in the circle of the rich and beautiful, where he gives the snarky intellectual. On his 65th birthday, the bon vivant looks back, strolls through Rome, seeks out old friends and reflects with mild sadness and self-mockery on the beauty and fleetingness of his existence.

Peter Farrelly, 2018 c8.2

When Tony Lip, a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on their journey.

Le Redoutable
Michel Hazanavicius, France, 2017
with Stacy Martin, Louis Garrel c6.6

Paris 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the most prominent filmmaker of his generation, shoots La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky. But the reception of the film on its release triggers a profound questioning in the director. May 68 amplifies the process, and the crisis that he is going through will deeply transform him from star filmmaker to Maoist artist outside of the system.
