    I love Robert Altman movies that have sequences where the room tone almost as loud as the main audio and you can still understand what you need to because of the framing and physical acting.

Rocco is a character that could easily be seen as weak, but the performance helps you understand. Renato Salvatori as Simone is one of the most revolting…
