Don’t Be Bad Non essere cattivo Mon 14 March. 18:00 A major discovery at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, Don’t Be Bad was also Italy’s Oscar candidate that year. It is the last film from the late Claudio Caligari, cult director of Toxic Love. With echoes of Martin Scorsese and Pier Paolo Pasolini, this is the story of two hedonistic best friends who are small-time drug dealers from a workingclass suburb in Ostia. In the middle of the 1990s, their lives are defined by petty crimes, minor scuffles, boredom, fast cars and ecstasy-fuelled oblivion. Vittorio decides to break the cycle by committing to a conventional life of hard graft and a steady relationship, but Cesare is hellbent on self-destruction. Their friendship is tested to the limit in a drama distinguished by its sense of empathy and understanding. Dir: Claudio Caligari Italy 2015 / 1h40m / 15+ Italian with English subtitles
