Fucky Film Review!

Bye Bye Monkey

Posted by Web Manager on March 22, 2010

Marco Ferreri 1978

If you’ve been waiting to see a movie where Gerard Depardieu gets raped by a feminist theater troupe, communicates with a police whistle, adopts a monkey, and destroys Imperial Rome, you can stop waiting.  CIAO MASCHIO is pretty spectacular.   The film goes to the quick of what I like to call the masculine question. Imagine what it must have been like on that fucking set! Marcello Mastroianni crying an old man’s tears on a desolate sand hill of the Battery Park construction site – empty acreage everywhere and the twin towers looming above, tits, fire, rats, and monkeys big and small – this movie has everything.
