Il Divo

Last night I watched Paolo Sorrentino's film about long-time Italian politician Giulio Andreotti. I recommend it. It's both entertaining and thoughtful. It's beautifully made, well-edited, creative, and has a great score. It addresses leadership. It addresses responsibility and accountability. It points out the terror and violence that marked Italian politics for years, as well as its dramatic and factional system (and for that matter, Church-influenced). And it's got an enjoyable light touch. Except for a few points you don't really get inside Andreotti - but you get a feel for him and his interesting world.
