Lee is back to dig into one of his favourite film genres of all time, especially when it come to soundtracks and scores: the Italian crime/Poliziotteschi film genre. Ultra violence, lurid sex, and all sorts of musical styles abound from these films, and Lee tried hard to trim down the playlist to some of his all-time favourite tracks. So load up your guns and take the law into your own hands as society breaks down around you, in corruption and violence. Can you come out the other end clean? Who cares when the music is this great? Note: at one point Lee credits "Death Proof" instead of "Death Wish" as an influence on the genre, and, of course, he butchers Italian pronounciations left and right. But you expected that, right?

This week the whole gang is back to take a look at William Friedkin's adaptation of "La Salaire de la Peur"/"The Wages of Fear", that being 1977's box office bomb "Sorcerer". Was it rightly dismissed back when it was released or did production problems and a little film called "Star Wars" kill the film's chances out of the gate? Also covered: listener comments and recent watches.
