Sean Baker’s review published on Letterboxd :
Watched the Scorpion Releasing Blu-ray.
So basically Paolo Cavara was the co-director of Mondo Cane and Women of the World. The former colleague of mondo filmmakers Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi must have 1) felt he needed to make amends for his mondo work 2) had resentment towards Jacopetti - because this film is basically a critical portrait of the way these films were made and Jacopetti himself. In the one extra on the Blu-ray, an interview with actor Lars Bloch, Bloch reveals that this film was a “revenge on Jacopetti”.
Beautifully shot by Marcello Masciocchi and Raffaele Masciocchi (not sure if they are father/son or brothers) on Techniscope.
Actress Delia Boccardo steals every shot basically because she photographs so well. Her beauty rivals that of Monica Vitti in my humble opinion.
