Giardino dei Finzi-Contini
[Garden of the Finzi-Continis]
(1970)

RATING:80%
FORMAT:DVD



Banality of Evil

Engaging film about White moral evasion in the face of the underlying White supremacy of their culture and its effects on their ability to be happy and that of others simply to continue existing. Here, Whites retreat into a literal fantasy Eden in order to banish thoughts of the real world from their desired carefree existences.

Film is also about the White emotional control needed to live within the political limitations of a culture as ethically-limited as White culture; conforming their emotions and friendships to the prevailing political orthodoxy, such that Whites appear as hollow-eyed in their personal relationships as they do in their political ones.

White politics makes personal relationships impossible because of this desired emotional repression, since Whites have to conflate the Personal with the Political to achieve social acceptance; making Fascism an inevitably White psychological illness and morbid obsession. By abandoning the needs and benefits of the Family to those of the State, Whites doom themselves to La Gabbia.

Fascinating as a companion-piece to Il Conformista.
