Short Cuts: Ossessione (1942)

Visconti's take on James M. Cain's sultry noir masterpiece, The Postman Always Rings Twice, is gritty, moving, and erotic in that classic Italian neo-realist style. Nothing says reality like the camera lens. A masterpiece of world cinema if there ever was one. Skip the Lana Turner/John Garfield version and hit this baby instead.
