‘Desperation insists I watch two Rossellini films tonight’ 2018
I have to watch two Roberto Rossellini films tonight, Rome Open City (1945) and Germany Year Zero (1948) so that I can watch Journey to Italy (1954) tomorrow and tick it off the list. I need to see five of the Critics 2012 Top 100 Films every week for the next 9 weeks.
The luxury of watching one or two films by any given director – with an additional two or five or nine – has passed me by.
