Fernando Di Leo: The Italian Crime Collection Vol. 2 (Blu-ray box) (Blu-ray)
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: Naked Violence (I Ragazzi del Massacro, 1969), Shoot First Die Later (Il Poliziotto E Marvio, 1974), and Kidnap Syndicate (La Citta Sconvolta. Caccia Spietata ai Rapitori, 1975).

Shoot First, Die Later
Desperately sought after, the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, action packed film SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER is known as one of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made. Luc Merenda gives the performance of his career as a highly regarded police detective who is taking syndicate money in exchange for departmental favors. A series of events leads the young detective to ask his father for a favor and it doesn't take long for the detective's father to realize his son is on the take...which leads to numerous complications.more info
