  1. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Caliber 9

    "Le Doulos" for the ADD-addled dirtbag in us all. Feels like it should come with its own early '90s east-coast rap soundtrack

    First of all the style here is amazing, like Melville but even slicker, you have a sense that every crime flick that came after ripped this one, even if it's very probable they weren't aware of Di Leo's films. Di Leo makes it seem natural that the italians would make the better mafia movies, since they're the one who invented it. The performances are either almost wordless or overplayed, but always great.

    'When you see someone like Ugo Piazza you better tip your hat' Excellent Italian programmer from director Fernando Di Leo that finds a recently released con trying to keep himself alive when he's suspected by parties on all sides of stealing a significant amount of money before his incarceration. Performances are genre friendly but its the storytelling that makes this one and the political undertone as well.

    Old-school hood Ugo tries to live by a code which is vanishing from his circle.

  16. Max_Hydr0's rating of the film Caliber 9

    One of the better Italian gangster films I've seen from the 1970s era. Snappy dialogues between police officials and gang members, witty and enjoyable in its extreme moments. And the hoodlums never relent in their fixated search for the stolen loot. The lead actor is a stereotype Milanese gangster, muscularly tough, stoic with a sparse vocabulary. And I liked the Communist-leaning reparte of the new police inspector.

  17. ArmandS's rating of the film Caliber 9

    Great Italian crime film, with lots of compelling characters and twists in the narrative, especially towards its conclusion. With solid direction and a hip and funky soundtrack, you can't go wrong.

  18. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Caliber 9

    This is the sort of terrific off-the-beaten-path discovery that makes me love MUBI. It's trashy in the very 70s kind of way, but it's also a lesson in how to shoot, edit, and score a film, with a sense of kinetic energy and vivid characterizations. Tarantino said that Di Leo was a master, and it's easy to imagine an impressionable Quentin watching this. It both warped his mind and taught him to how direct.

  19. correy baldwin's rating of the film Caliber 9

    The progressive minded cop was a nice touch. Too bad he was tangential to the rest of the film.

  20. jamesey's rating of the film Caliber 9

    Awesome action, and some intense double-crossing! The communism vs capitalism debate that seemed to come from nowhere was weird. Definitely a fun movie if you're looking for a kickass time. Also, awesome sound track.

  21. klofter's rating of the film Caliber 9

    Fantastic crime thriller. Loses a bit of steam in the middle section but the last 30 minutes or so more than make up for it. There's even mild political commentary! The performances are mostly very good and Mario Adorf is just a joy to watch. But the best thing is the score. Moody, mysterious, yearning - the perfect tone for this wonderful movie.

  22. dominique s.'s rating of the film Caliber 9

    One of the best Italian crime films out there. Gastone Moschin's performance is wonderful and the soundtrack is very groovy.

  23. barleeku@comcast.net's rating of the film Caliber 9

    Excellent crime drama. Deserves the much used adjective "taut". Very 1970s in the best sense. Mario Adorf is fantastic to watch and the rest of the cast is excellent.
