Repertory Series ArchiveSeven Beauties: The Films of Lina Wertmüller

All Screwed Up

Buy Tickets

all-screwed-up-1

(1974) dir Lina Wertmüller w/Luigi Diberti, Nino Bignamini, Giuliana Calandra, Sara Rapisarda, Lina Polito [108 min; DCP]
An anarchically outrageous comedy, ALL SCREWED UP is ripe for rediscovery, an accomplishment as impressive as the classics she made before and after. Gigi (Diberti) and Carletto (Bignamini) are two Southern country boys traveling north to get work in Milan. Arriving with nothing but the clothes on their backs, they join the labor movement and live in a communal home. Their dreams of wealth devolve into a series of slapstick adventures, from an uproarious attempt at petty crime to the daily indignities of life in a restaurant kitchen.

“Breathtaking… exuberantly funny. Watching ‘All Screwed Up’ is to be witness to a giant talent.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times

“A brilliant movie that must be seen several times!” – Rex Reed

“Lina Wertmüller is the most important director since Ingmar Bergman!” – John Simon, New York Magazine
