I watched this kickass macho poliziottesco for the first time last night without realising that its director had died a month ago. Incredibly cinematic, great cast and Morricone score and several surprisingly powerful scenes. Only the third film I've seen by "the third Sergio" but all three are great. RIP, maestro.
01/06/15 really great genre jumper, from a loose Giallo to a Poliziotteschi to a Political Thriller, with a lil youth culture exploitation thrown into the mix. you alter your sympathies throughout, power-dynamics tend to switch up every half hour and altho it gets long on paranoia exposition it also has some tight action dialogue and an incredible performance by oliver reed. score by ennio morricone is unbeatable
A great and gritty Italian thriller with Fabio Testi wearing a fur and Oliver Reed (dubbed, which somehow makes him appear even nastier as the "good guy"). An opening scene that makes one wonder if Tarantino saw before he wrote the Tim Roth character in RESERVIOR DOGS.
