    Bicycle Thieves

    No dedicated thread on this film, which ranked 87th on one of our Top 100 lists of spiritually significant films. Saw it last night. Pretty great. I shouldn't qualify the "great" with "pretty," but "pretty great" is rarely uttered by me. It's high praise. It's just that neorealism takes a while to work on me. In this case, it took at least half of the film for me to really engage the material. Not that the first half was lacking in any way; I just have difficulty with neorealism. In this case, the film's latter portion devastated me -- something that's rare even among the neorealist films I admire ("Open City" comes to mind). I didn't have time to watch the supplemental disc on the Criterion edition of the DVD, but I'm very glad I saw this film before the next round of voting in our Top 100 poll. Who else has seen it? EDIT: BTW, I have no idea why the film, which I've always heard titled "The Bicycle Thief," carries the plural title in the Criterion edition. I assume the plural is more accurate, and, having seen the film, realize that it's a more accurate reflection of the film's content. More here.
