The Path Of Oil
"In the interval between BEFORE THE REVOLUTION and PARTNER, Bertolucci directed his only substantial documentary, a fascinating exploration of the 'path of oil,' following its extraction in Iran to its dispersal throughout Europe. Commissioned by Eni, the nationalized petroleum company of Italy, Bertolucci's meditation on the complex process of gas production seems nonetheless slyly preoccupied by the colonial enterprise underlying it; Middle Eastern nations supply the raw materials of modernity but don't benefit from its advancements. Divided into three parts, Bertolucci's grandly shot black-and-white film experiments with the nonfiction form as he discovers aesthetic riches buried in its substrate." –Steve Seid, PACIFIC FILM ARCHIVE
