The Temptation of St. Tony


A mid-level manager who develops an aversion to being “good” finds himself confronting the mysteries of middle-age and morality as he loses grasp of what was once his quiet life.


I didn’t understand this movie at all. It’s all done in black and white. It opens with a funeral where a car sort of runs by the funeral procession and flips over a cliff and hits the ocean. One blood man gets out and he pulls out somebody else who is dead, and then he follows people around. I think it must be a metaphor and that it is meaningful and very smart but I just never got it. I can’t give it any stars because I didn’t understand any of it. It is certainly beautifully photographed. It’s in black and white but I didn’t get it, so no stars.
