The Boom (Il boom) (1963)
Critic Reviews for The Boom (Il boom)
[A] snappy Italian satire, somewhat reminiscent of Billy Wilder's The Apartment.
Imagine Buster Keaton crossed with David Lynch, with a bit of Billy Wilder satire tossed into the mix, and you'll have a rough idea of the wild and crazy tightrope 1963's absurdist "Il Boom" manages to walk.
Written by Cesare Zavattini, who did the screenplays for many of De Sica's best-known works, the movie skewers the mendacity inherent in the postwar economic resurgence in his country.
Sordi's character, a middle-class middle manager struggling in vain to keep up with Italy's consumer-happy prosperity in the mid-1960s, finds himself in a familiar pickle.
