Product Description

EUROCRIME! THE ITALIAN COP AND GANGSTER FILMS THAT RULED THE 70’S tells the story of the violent “poliziotteschi” cinematic movement of the 1970s which arose from Italy in the wake of the success of  American crime films like DIRTY HARRY and THE GODFATHER. Hundreds of cheaply produced yet highly entertaining and fast paced films created a genre that found cult appeal in audiences outside of Italy. The rushed methods of production – stars performing their own risky stunts, the practice of “stealing shots” in public, filming without live sound – and with a dangerous bleed-over between real-life and on-screen crime, these movies offered a tough, gritty world of moustached, macho men killing each other brutally and racing their tiny cars down tiny alleyways…and as this documentary demonstrates, the behind-the-scenes stories were no less colourful!

Includes interviews with Henry Silva, Fred Williamson, John Saxon, Luc Merenda, Antonio Sabato, Franco Nero, Christopher Mitchum, Enzo G. Castellari, Joe Dallesandro and many, many more.

Available for the first time on stunning VHS, this release of Mike Malloy’s fascinating documentary comes with a 48-page full colour fanzine featuring words by the director himself on the production of the film, an article on the Poliziotteschi oeuvre ‘s greatest director, Fernando Di Leo, by crime writer Andrew Nette (PulpCurry.com), and much more. The edition also comes with a double sided EUROCRIME! poster, designed by Matt O’Neill (It’s Only A T-Shirt).

    “One of the best and most engaging documentaries about the [Italian film] industry for some time, and a film definitely worth seeking out, even for non-genre aficionados” – James Mudge, BeyondHollywood.com
