Director: Francesco Rosi
Cast: Salvo Randone, Frank Wolff, Sennuccio Benelli, Giuseppe Calandra, Pietro Cammarata, Max Cartier
Italy, 1962, 107’, black & white, Italian with Turkish subtitles 

This crime and mafia film brought Francesco Rosi international fame and was the first example of his unique mosaic style. Based on the life story of Salvatore Giuliano, a Sicilian bandit and folk hero who played a key role in Sicily’s guerilla war for independence after the war and later turned into a mafia leader, the film begins with Giuliano’s murder in 1950 and narrates with flashbacks how he became a bandit, attacking communists and fighting security forces. Eventually, Giuliani becomes so cruel that even his own men desert him.

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
