PastaDrop #1: A Cinematic Treat
Welcome to PastaDrop, the site for connecting with friends and family members via bulk pasta deliveries. For our first offering, we have something very special in store!
For inspiration in designing our first noodle, lead pasta engineer Horton Clegg turned to someone outside the culinary world: Italian filmmaker Vincenzo Albretti (1923-1996).
Called “the man who brought scrawn to the big screen” (Hal Jeffers, New York Times), “Sergio Lean” (Omar Mendoza, The Washington Post), and “the dehydrator of high noon” (Helen Wittson, The Chicago Tribune), Albretti set himself apart among Western directors with an interesting technique. He assigned his actors set amounts of sauna time before they were to film a given scene.
The result? According to Clegg, exhilarating:
“The flailing of the gaunt limbs. The sunken cheeks. The woozy desperation of major stars like Buck Helm and Gigi Strum, usually portraits of good health and grooming, as they move through the frames, their bodies spindly, their shirts blooming with perspiration–it all brought an utterly new energy to what was, in many ways, a formulaic genre. That’s what we wanted to do with our first offering. We wanted to bring [Albretti’s] vision to the plate. Or bowl.”
And he and his team of pasta engineers did just that with the spaghettini: a thin, versatile noodle like nothing you’ve ever seen before!
