Outstanding political crime thriller
This is a remarkable film which captures perfectly the greyness, cynicism and violence of the Italian political scene in the 70s and 80s, the ‘years of lead’ as Italians call them (anni di piombo). The highly script, acting and direction are all top notch and the twists and turns keep you glued to the screen. It really deserves to be better known. The ending is extraordinarily downbeat! No Hollywood feelgood in this one.
Review By: hou-3 Rating: 9 Date: 2018-09-13
Grab your chins and prepare to do some stroking because we are in serious territory here with Francesco Rosi’s Illustrious Corpses.

No jaw-socking, car chases and even gunfights here, but don’t run off to Maurizio Merli yet. What we have here is a nice, thick Spezzatino full of meat (plot), vegetables (twists), and herbs (cameo appearances by various Italian genre actors), all mainly revolving around middle-aged policeman Rogas.

The general tone of the film is set when we see an elderly judge wandering through the Catacombe dei Cappuccini, looking at the corpses and perhaps considering his own mortality. That would be ironic because about a minute after he leaves someone unknown assassin shoots him.

This brings us to Rogas, Italy’s best detective, brought in because killing judges isn’t generally approved. At first Rogas brings in the local mob, but as one Don states: “You know you are wasting your time with us.” While he’s doing that another judge is killed on a highway, and yet another while Rogas is in the same building. This piles significant pressure on Rogas as the situation becomes, as one person puts it ‘political’.

Rogas reckons he’s nailed the case when he starts digging into trials involving all three judges, which leads to him finding a suspect for whom every image has been destroyed, including photo albums and even police documentation. This leads the film into giallo territory for a brief time as we see another judge get stalked and murdered, while Rogas is pushed to look at subversive groups and bag a quick arrest by his superiors.

This two hour long film that has very little action should be snooze-fest, but it is relentlessly fascinating to watch Rogas weave his way through the political labyrinth of Italy’s Years of Lead, speaking with bemused, yet sinister Senators like Fernando Rey (great here), angry, unrepentent judges like Max Von Sydow (also great), and the Communist party (including journalist Luigi Pistilli). You also get cameos from Marcel Bozuffi and Tina Aumont thrown in for good measure.

What also keeps you watching is the ever growing sense of doom and paranoia that begins to surround Rogas as he loses confidence and trust in every single person he deals with, leaving him constantly looking over his shoulder. There’s a scene where he realises his telephone is bugged that’s as foreboding as any horror film.

I highly recommend this one – it’s dark and complex. Like a Spezzatino.
