LA MASCHERA DEL DEMONIO (1960)

A seminal Italian horror classic that takes whatever you think of when you hear the word “gothic” and is way more gothic than that.

L’AVVENTURA (1960)

A landmark of “modernist” cinema, but don’t expect it to, y’know, have a story or make any attempt to explain anything.

SPARTACUS (1960)

As epics of Roman battles go, Spartacus is the thinking-man’s version. It also helped break the Hollywood Blacklist.

THE APARTMENT (1960)

Winning performances set against stark corporate modernism highlight a fun comedy, albeit one with a surprising amount of attempted suicides.
