Farley likes it that the bar is only a drinking robe away.
Verson Jetorix: “A fine and dreamy tale of decadence gone awry. A great cast (Farley Granger, Rosalba Neri, Barbara Bouchet) and a druggy Hitchockian plot make this a clear and perennial winner.”
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.
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.”
This sequenced J&B plays like a commercial.
Chris Mitchum’s pre-revenjin J&B.
Verson Jetorix: “This turned out to be a rather fun ride but low expectations may have something to do with our appreciation of this Italian crime entry.”

J&B at the bowling alley! Meanwhile, Giuseppe Castellano checks out that chick’s ass.
Verson Jetorix: “Superior crime film from Fernando Di Leo with an excellent performance from Gastone Moschin as an ex-con outwitting the mob for stolen money. Barbara Bouchet is totally hot. With Mario Adorf, Frank Wolff, Luigi Pistilli, Philippe Leroy and J&B up the ying yang.”
I’ll take seven, no eight of those.
