The Belly of an Architect is a 1987 American film directed by Peter Greenaway and starring Brian Dennehy and Chloe Webb. Workaholic architect Stourley Kracklite (Denney) is commissioned to design an exhibition in Rome in honor of the famed architect Etienne-Louis Boullee. Boullee, however, is not without controversy, for his work was the inspiration behind many of Albert Speer's designs. Speer, was Adolf Hitler's right hand man in designing buildings for the Third Reich. Kracklite devotes himself entirely to the project, even at the expensive of his marriage and his health. His pregnant wife then finds open arms in Caspasian Speckler (Lamert Wilson). Kracklite's stomach pains begin to get the best of him, and both his physical and societal decline mirror that of Boullee. When he believes that his wife has been poisoning him, Kracklite further alienates himself from the world around him. Filmed on location in Rome, The Belly of An Architect was well received by critics.
