    Marlowe is hilariously out of step with his surroundings here, shuffling around his space-age apartment building and muttering at the hippie chicks doing yoga next door. Catch But Bernardo Bertolucci's adaptation of Moravia's novel Il Conformista stands above them all as a lasting achievement in international cinema, and as the pinnacle of Bertolucci's career.

He is more chillingly robotic than he ever was in RoboCop: at least in that movie you could sense the humanity behind the metal husk. This kicks off a worldwide effort to investigate the hand and locate the rest of the giant, leading to the big question: Will the end result be an incredible discovery leading mankind forward, or turn out to be a deadly weapon that destroys us all? It also holds up surprisingly well as a jarring allegory for the population's fears over escalating cold war tensions. Some members of those expeditions returned mysteriously, and most died within weeks of aggressive cancers.
