Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection

Crew
Directed by Fernando di Leo


Fernando Di Leo was a prolific filmmaker who explored the political extremism and mafia corruption in Italy during the 1970's. Master of garish, intricately plotted, ultra-violent stories about pimps and petty gangsters, Di Leo has perfected the genre with an uncanny accuracy.

Di Leo's films demonstrate the degradation of the working classes and how the mafia corrupted them. Though he slipped out of public consciousness after his death in 2003, his works have been revived and shown at the Tate Modern in London and The Venice Film Festival where Quentin Tarantino admitted that Di Leo truly inspired him to make gangster films.

Contained in this box set is the Milieu Trilogy: Caliber 9 (Milano Calibro 9, 1972), The Italian Connection (La Mala Ordina, 1972), The Boss (Il Boxx, 1973). Exclusive to this box set is Rulers of the City (I Padroni della Citta, 1976),

Reviews

"This 4-disc, Blu-ray set collects four of the grittiest, ass-kickingest damn gangster movies ever made. These bullet-ridden Italian thrillers spawned from writer/director Fernando Di Leo, who had previously co-written the first two films in the Dollars Trilogy (albeit work for which he went uncredited). Without any reservations I can proclaim this the first must-own release of the New Year for the rabid cinephile." - Filmmonthly
