THE SPIDER'S STRATAGEM

Long undistributed in the U.S. and still unavailable here on DVD or Blu-ray, this major Bertolucci film (made between The Conformist and Last Tango in Paris) tells of a young man who receives a cool welcome when he returns to the village where his anti-fascist father was murdered in 1936. Adapted from a Borges short story; sumptuous color cinematography by Vittorio Storaro. With Alida Valli. Has a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “Bertolucci at the height of his powers.” –Time Out Film Guide. Imported print! Subtitles. 97 min.

Special thanks to Gavin Smith, Quad Cinema, New York, and Marco Cicala, Istituto Luce Cinecittà, Rome. This screening is dedicated to the late Dan Talbot, whose company New Yorker Films originally released The Spider's Stratagem on film and VHS in the U.S.
