RIP Bernardo Bertolucci. I've seen 1900 a few times and each time I've been blown away by its ambition & energy. As Pauline Kael said, it made other films look like "something you hold up at the end of a toothpick." What a run he had in the '70s, with The Conformist & Last Tango. pic.twitter.com/vY7IOdzmTU

Bernardo Bertolucci has died. A sad day for cinema. Also a day which shows how little people care abt sexual assault. A little reminder: he tricked his actress in Last Tango of Paris into a rape scene so that it would be "authentic". Would be great if this wasn't forgotten today. pic.twitter.com/sRca3ArmdA

As I see all of the effusive praises for Bernardo Bertolucci and his "art," I want to remind you of what I will always remember about him. I'm tired of the world overlooking the insidious behavior of men because of the "genius" label. #TimesUp #MeToo https://t.co/vlws9gGToS
