This should liven up the hostage situation.

Verson Jetorix: “Claudio Casinelli and his gang pull a heist that quickly goes wrong and he must avoid the cops and find the dough that two of the gang made off with. Mario Caiano’s crime noir has a dreary palette and unlikable characters. Silvia Dionisio brightens the proceedings.”

Blood and Diamonds

Liquor stores deliver in Italy-town.

A triple shot.

Claudio Cassinelli looks right thru Barbara Bouchet.  And that ain’t easy.

Claudio knows what he wants.

The game is getting blurry.

Thanks, Brad!

Verson Jetorix: “Claudio Cassinelli does some misguided revengin’ that destroys everyone around him before he finds out the truth. Fernando di Leo’s crime story is not exactly underrated but it is somewhat misunderstood. Its atmosphere of ennui is reflective of the characters and the genre, but also of Di Leo himself no doubt. If it was Peckinpah, they’d call it elegiac.”

Richard Crenna needs to keep his J&B far from his bed and pedestal TV.

Verson Jetorix: “Cop Richard Crenna investigates a series of sniper hooker killings. Poorly written and poorly acted, this low-rent Canadian production does feature 70s ambience and nudity in abundance. Paul Williams plays a sentimental pimp.”

Silent Action

Luc Merenda eyeballs the multi-shot of J&B as soon as he walks in.

J&B classes up the joint.

jnb Silent Action3

The bottle every robber dreams of finding.

jnb Silent Action4

Two bottles of J&B classes up even this scary clown joint.

Now to relax and watch a Maurizio Merli movie.  (Somehow I can never picture Luc Merenda sitting around watching TV.)

Let’s hope he hasn’t torn the room apart looking for J&B.

Verson Jetorix: “Cop Luc Merenda’s investigation leads him into dangerous political territory. Sergio Martino’s crime film has serious matters on its mind but still manages to entertain.”
