I hesitated a couple of weeks before mentioning Il Sorpasso because bringing up an obscure movie and declaring it "great" smells a lot like I want to be seen as a cognoscenti--which is not the case. I'm an ordinary person with ordinary tastes. I found this movie on late night TV and watched it out of boredom. You could say I saw it by accident.
Why this movie is not well known is a puzzle to me.
