Episode 62: Investigation Of A Citizen Above Suspicion (1970)
Now available on iTunes and Soundcloud
@movie_mattinee and @samenightmovie head over to Italy for a film that sums up the awfulness of the 70s pretty well: 1970's Best Foreign Language Winner, Investigation Of A Citizen Above Suspicion, a crime drama where we follow the killer as he investigates, well, himself. A scathing satire of police corruption and what it means to be powerful, Elio Petri's film is as relevant today as it was nearly fifty years ago - if not moreso. With a command performance by Gian Maria Volante and a score by the great Ennio Morricone, the boys have a fun time getting to the universal themes, drama and tragedy of this one. Fun AND police corruption? Together? Oh yes!
