Two Weeks in Another Town (1962)

Film critics have been less than kind to Vincent Minelli’s Two Weeks in Another Town, the story of a faded star who travels to Italy at the request of a director with whom he had his biggest successes. However, the film’s exaggerated melodrama, Freudian themes, la dolce vita setting and technicolor cinematography make for a heady experience that prefigures such Scorsese psychological tussles as New York, New York. As Jonathan Rosenbaum notedTwo Weeks  is “compulsively watchable”. This one’s ripe for reconsideration.
