THE ORGANIZER [I Compagni>
Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, this film gives Marcello Mastroianni one of his best roles, as a late-19th-century labor leader orchestrating a strike at a Turin textile plant. With an exquisite handling of period, the film had a sizable impact when it came out in 1963, though it's been curiously neglected ever since. "Arguably one of the great Italian films of the 1960s, it cries out for rediscovery." –Jonathan Rosenbaum.
