Often regarded as Bernardo Bertolucci’s best film, “The Conformist” follows a compliant Italian man turned political assassin. Upon meeting the wife of his target, the man’s loyalties are put to the test. Citing an “unsettling blend of images and ideas,” critic Andrew O’Hehir attests that “it’s the very strangeness of Bertolucci’s masterpiece that has made it so influential in cinema history.”
