Strategia del ragno (1970)
Bertolucci intimately backtracks 20th century Italy in his most personal way, having the protagonist return to a run-down village for investigation of a 1936 political murder mystery. Athos Magnani died for a cause, but which?
Suggestively mixing present with past, reality with myth, everyday life with that of the theatre. In my book of the irritatingly vague, confused, and open-ended.
