I pugni in tasca / Fists in the pocket

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Ιταλία/Italy, 1965, 105 ́, 35mm, α/μ/b&w, Με ήχο/sound

In this astonishing debut of Marco Bellocchio, a young man, tormented by twisted desires, takes drastic measures to rid his grotesquely dysfunctional family of its various afflictions. With its coolly assured style, shocking perversity, and savage gallows humor, Fists in the Pocket was a gleaming ice pick in the eye of bourgeois family values and Catholic morality. A truly unique work that continues to rank as one of the great achievements of Italian cinema.
