Moment Of Truth, The: The Criterion Collection

The Moment Of Truth, from director Francesco Rosi is a visceral plunge into the

life of a famous torero-played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting

his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and

operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. Like all of

the great Italian truth seeker's films, this is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving

inquiry into a violent world-and perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made.
