Contrasting Groucho Marx with Bernardo Bertolucci

Thus actually is about Unites States and Italian culture. On Dick Cavett show, Groucho said in an interview that Americans glorify the mother and that that the father has a hidden role. In an interview with Bernardo Bertolucci, procured in the Criterion Collection edition of The Last Emperor, Bertolucci says that the mother has a hidden role, almost in contrast to Groucho’s American observation. Bertolucci may have a Freudian complex much like Groucho has an Electra-like complex. But one thing is certain. One’s identity can’t be communicated without acknowledging this psychoanalytic drive in the aforementioned artists.
