      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Ultimately more interesting than satisfying. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Richard Propes Pasolini's contribution is unquestionably my favorite of the four here. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 21, 2020 Full Review Fernando F. Croce CinePassion The four filmmakers lend their names for the omnibus title, plus a prankish sketch each on the dangers of modernism Mar 21, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member (I sent this to Nope Street in Nopeville.) Perhaps I was too hasty in my dismissal. It's growing on me more and more. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Four directors and four episodes different as in style as in content. Trivial but nice the Rossellini's episode, too pretentious but refined the Godard's story. Pasolini's film sums up all his political and religious vision, while the Gregoretti's one is a funny critique of consumerism. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful movie. Especially the 4th episode - Il Pollo Ruspante (Free range Chicken) - makes the whole movie worth: a brilliant and hilarious depiction of how advertisement science controls people mind. No modern movie ever made such a precise and quick analysis. Don't miss it. (easy to find the full movie on YouTube with english subtitles) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member la ricotta vale il voto.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Ro. 1 1/2. Pa. 2. Go. 3. G. 3 1/2. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A collection of four films by Rossellini, Godard, Pasolini and Gregoretti that has only been released in the US on VHS. Pasolini's entry, "La Ricotta" is a brilliant examination on religion but due to an outdated law which was still on the books in Italy at the time of the film's creation he (Pasolini) was jailed for defying the church of the state. A balanced collection of work from the other directors but this short is amongst the finest work of Pasolini's career. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
