Excellent piece on “Mamma Roma”


What’s more cinematic than a social satire about an aging prostitute/mother, directed by a gay Italian man?

Well, there’s more to Pasolini’s Mamma Roma than that, as explained by local critic Sean Axmaker on the Turner Classic Movies website (the film did play on tv, though we’re showing a new 35mm print).

Read, learn, understand, and don’t miss this beautiful film playing at Northwest Film Forum September 3-9!
