The Cynic, The Rat & The Fist (1977)

AKA Il cinico, l'infame, il violento.

It's a grimy Italian seventies crime movie. Let me give you a sample.

The Chinaman (writing): Frenk... How do you spell Frenk, with an E?

Goon: No, with an A.

Chinaman: Then why do you pronounce it Frenk? Frenk...


The blood might look like paint again, the zoom-in's sometimes a bit cheesy, and the punches not all like real punches but still... it's gritty in a good way.

They have a somewhat elaborate heist bit. The cars look great. The sceneries are great. The characters exhibit strength and charisma and the pace isn't bad either.

Was thinking I might skim but this one kept me in. Feels a bit like The Good, The Bad, The Ugly but in the city, not the wild. Dirty Harry-like.

Wouldn't surprise me if it was inspired by both of those.
