Il Conformista tells the story of a man who goes abroad to arrange the assasination of his old teacher, now dissent. Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, this film is a heavy case study of conformism, fascism in which it relies deeply on its subject matter. The movie had a complex narrative that was honestly a bit hard to follow. However, what really stands out was the cinematography. How it expresses the feeling of dread and isolation through the shots. My favorite scene was how the cinematography reflected and symbolized Plato’s allegory of the cave.
