Sbatti il mostro in prima pagina

Marco Bellocchio Italy, 1972

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Slap the Monster on Page One

The social and political situation in the Italy of the 70's was a true bargain for Italian directors then. Here, journalism meets mass manipulation and politics when a teenager is killed in a Milanese garbage dump. Gian Maria Volontè is not a bad guy, he's simply telling us the truth as it is and shows us how to use it in order to serve his employer's interests. 'We also take part in the class-war'. 4 *.
