    Has power not only as film scholarship, but as an inquiry into cinema's interplay with our collective memories and the nature of history itself.

    For most people, four hours pushes the outer comfort limits for theatrical viewing. My Voyage to Italy is well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.
  3. A great experience, precisely because it's so intimate and unguarded.
  4. There is no denying the passion or intelligence of this work, which is meant to be an encouragement to explore the films for ourselves rather than a dry history lesson. On that level, "Viaggio" fully succeeds.
  5. Extraordinary labor of love.
