Personal Quote:

[on Silvio Berlusconi] We had 20 years with him. With his big TV channels, he created many subcultural values. He killed culture, in a way. He anaesthetised the brains of young people growing up in those years. Often, you can see an ignorance that is so big and so terrifying. See more »

Trivia:

When the Italian Bertolucci was Oscar-nominated as Best Director for The Last Emperor (1987) (and won), his Best Director fellow nominees were all non-Americans: Adrian Lyne and John Boorman (UK), Lasse Hallström (Sweden) and Norman Jewison (Canada) making that particular instance unique in Oscar history.
