"The Grim Reaper"
Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci
Rarely since Citizen
Kane has a film debut by a director conveyed such promise. Like Rashomon, The
Grim Reaper brilliantly explores the many sides to the truth of a brutal murder of a
prostitute in a Rome Park. Bernardo Bertolucci delves into the dark underbelly of brute
poverty, creating a tense tapestry of behavior and a challenging puzzle which leaves us
celebrating life in all is pain, joy and humor. Italian with English subtitles.
