In my dreams, I remember when Bertolucci was a skilled and important director. Nowadays, all he's interested in are good-looking but marginally talented actors and nice camera setups. Not bad when it's about cinephilia, but gets much less exciting when the subject turns to sex or (especially) politics -- it's in the tradition of those with-it '60s films like I Am Curious (Yellow) where the political content was hastily mixed into the script so that censor boards wouldn't brand the film as pornography. Revolution, schmevolution -- this is about attractive people getting naked. Be honest with yourselves and us.
