Marco Ferreri , Italy 1969, 90 min
After a hard day’s work designing this year’s gas masks, industrial engineer Glauco (Michel Piccoli) comes home to a cold dinner, a sleeping wife, and an aloof maid. The answer to his petit-bourgeois boredom? Prepare a gourmet meal, putter about, and reconstruct an antique revolver that may or may not have been owned by John Dillinger. A mind-blowing, multi-layered, and psychedelicized celebration of anarchy in life and cinema, Marco Ferreri’s unjustly neglected masterpiece is a cult classic awaiting its cult, anchored by a stunning lead performance and an amazing pop soundtrack. Janus Films is proud to present this film in a new 35mm print, for its first-ever release in the United States.
