901 Mission Street
Building is the U.S. base for Giancarlo Giannini's Italian journalist in
Wertmuller's The End of the World in Our Usual Bed in a Night Full
of Rain, aka Night Full of Rain. The 1978 film includes great footage
of the South of Market area long before today's familiar development there.
Wertmuller's usual stew of sex roles and politics is well represented in
this, her first English language film. Candice Bergen is Giancarlo's capitalist
foil this time around in a continuation of themes from Wertmuller's brilliant
earlier work, Swept Away by a Strange Destiny in the Blue Sea of August,
aka Swept Away.
