NWFC: Il Sorpasso
DIRECTOR: DINO RISI
Classically mismatched co-stars Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant embark on a wildly reckless ride in an iconic Lancia Aurelia convertible from Rome to rural southern Italy. An inspiration to American road movies from EASY RIDER to SIDEWAYS, Risi’s commedia all’italiana reads as a sort of elegy on the unfettered energies of the early 1960s—fast cars, jazz, rock ’n’ roll, and cool fashion sense. “IL SORPASSo uses its journey to reveal a whole culture. . .a brilliant snapshot of the boom years when poor, war-ravaged Italy suddenly became a go-go nation where the economy boomed, people bought cars, and everyone wanted to have fun.”—John Powers.
