But Robert De Niro provided the event with a grand finale when he attended a public interview and screened footage of his CIA thriller "The Good Shepherd" Saturday.

Dazzling, if a bit outre, 10-minute trailer of De Niro's depiction of the CIA's origins included a scene in which protag Matt Damon is urinated upon as he squirms in mud as part of an initiation rite into what appears to be Yale U.'s Skull & Bones secret society, from which early CIA agents allegedly were recruited.

"It's kind of ambitious," De Niro told the more than 1,500 fans packed into Rome's Parco Della Musica Auditorium.

Budgeted at a reported $110 million, "The Good Shepherd" goes out Stateside via Universal Dec. 22. Medusa is releasing in Italy.

Re: RomeFilmFest

Thanks, just saw your post, but had posted it in a separate item.

I can no longer view this site at work, but can update (illogical firewalls), so unscreening posts may now take a while.
