  5. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Slap the Monster on Page One

    An acid portrait of journalism as the refuge of opportunistic swine. Volonte scoffs at a naive young reporter's insistence on "objectivity," ridicules his right-wing papers' readers, manipulates and despises everyone, and approvingly quotes Goebbels's theory of propaganda. Right and left alike get damned in this portrait of Italy 1972 as a fetid canal upon which refuse lazily drifts.

  6. nein's rating of the film Slap the Monster on Page One

    Disturbing in the world ruled by the Fourth Estate.

  7. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Slap the Monster on Page One

    Volontè è un fenomeno in questi ruoli da fascista conservatore e grazie al suo carisma e alla regia asciutta di Bellocchio ne esce fuori una bella pellicola,che tratta dei collegamenti sporchi tra il potere politico-industriale e il giornalismo,con l'annessa manipolazione delle notizie.Dialoghi d'impatto(la gestione della semantica,gli scontri ideologici,il nulla familiare...),per un film amaramente vero.3,5*
