The Conformist is a simple movie, but it has a lot to offer the viewer. It's hard to find a movie done this well. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with this movie online. Anyway, Drama may boast of one of the biggest numbers of good movies. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Fucking loved this movie! Such a mix of emotions.
