Blood on the Tracks Episode 8: Poliziotteschi.

November 30th, 2017

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?

Playlist:

--Prelude from "Caliber 9" (1972) -- Luis Bacalov & Osanna
--Montreal Non Stop from "Stateline Motel" (1973) -- Luis Bacalov

Lee and Daniel get closer to the end of this extend look at crime films by checking out two more Poliziotteschi films. First-up, they look at the mostly forgotten slow-burn from Romolo Guerrieri, "The Police Serve the Citizens?" (1973). Then they check out the action-packed Enzo G. Castellari film, "The Heroin Busters" (1977). Much of the talk of the latter surrounds Fabio Testi's amazing wardrobe and how the British have sex. Also: does your motorcycle have airbags? You might wish it did after listening to this conversation. What they've watched as of late, and listener comments are also covered.
