Full sun. France, 1960 (115 minutes). Director: Rene Clement. Cast: Alain Delon, Marie Laforet, Maurice Ronet.
A fascinating novel by Patricia Highsmith serves as the basis for this masterpiece by René Clément, the unclassifiable author of Prohibited games. In Full Sun is a cloudy and unhealthy film, in which some beautiful images photographed by the great Henri Decae explode. Alain Delon gives life to the amoral Ripley, embarked on a perfect crime attempt with which to satisfy his careerism and his ambitions. A work full of dark greed and feverish passions that digs into the depths of the human condition through an intoxicating narrative cadence and staging work of suffocating intensity.

‘The last movie’
The Last Picture Show. USA, 1971 (114 minutes). Director: Peter Bogdanovich. Cast: Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd.
In the sixties, the new wave it represented the death of a way of understanding cinema; at the same time, its components revered the directors who filmed it. Surely they did not imagine that their replacement would come in the seventies, thanks to some young Americans who would blow up the forms of classic cinema. Coppola pitched The Godfather in 1972; Scorsese, Taxi driver in 1973, and Bogdanovich, The last movie in 1971. A work that put an expiration date on a generation that lived through the arrival of television, the Korean War, the death of hippie utopias. This immense work speaks of this: of a society without handles, of characters mired in dust, of a cinema that they will never see again and no one will create again.

USA, 1989 (125 minutes). Director: Ridley Scott. Cast: Michael Douglas Andy Garcia, Ken Takakura, Kate Capshaw.
Before beginning its decline in the nineties, Ridley Scott still knew how to add visual substance to a thriller with a somewhat conventional plot that follows in the footsteps of the eternal policeman with a dark past.
