From the post-World War II Neorealismo period, which merged cinematic realism with a focus on glaring social problems and postwar poverty; to Fellini’s imitable cinematic style combining surreal carnival with incisive social critique; to the acclaimed films of present-day directors; Italian cinema has given us great cinema. In this course, we view some of the greatest Italian films and analyze how they use the verbal, visual, and visceral art form. For the purposes of our discussions, a fresh impression is required. Therefore we do not list the films you will see. You would be surprised how this changes the understanding of the film.
