DVD: Dillinger is Dead

by Tony Nigro

What?  You don’t know il cinema di Marco Ferreri?  For shame!  He’s the maestro behind La Grande Bouffe, better known in English as Blow-Out, though not the Brian De Palma one you’re thinking of because, being an Italian film, it has more to do with eating and hookers than anything else.  Ferreri also co-wrote and directed Dillinger Is Dead, a groovy curio about a man in a room that comes to DVD today courtesy of the fine people at the Criterion Collection.

I could watch that trailer all day.  The only thing that could improve it would be a score by Piero Umiliani.
