It's been a while since I've seen an Italian crime movie (despite having one from netflix on my desk for the past two months) and this seemed to be super-talked-up by those in the know. I'm glad I saw it but think I may have gotten too tired to fully appreciate the ending. I'm not sure if I was expected to understand every little plot twist the first time through anyway, but heavy eyelids do not help. I liked what I was able to pay attention to though... especially Franco Nero's short ties. He was one stylish cop! Hot damn! Also, thanks to the dubbing, I thought he told a goon that he WOULD shit on his face instead of he HAS shit on his face, so for a few minutes I thought I had a new favorite line ever.
Lars pointed out the quality and quantity of man-slaps here and he was right. By calling attention to them he actually created a palpable excitement whenever the whole theater saw one coming up. Even though it sucks that the small theater has like 15 seats, I like the closer energy of the crowd more than the main auditorium I think.
Anyway, I'm paying for it now with a day of fatigue-driven torture but I have no regrets. Worth going out to.
