Product Description:

"The provocative Italian filmmaker Elio Petri's most internationally acclaimed work is this remarkable, visceral, Oscar-winning thriller. Petri maintains a tricky balance between absurdity and realism in telling the Kafkaesque tale of a Roman police inspector (A Fistful of Dollars's Gian Maria Volont‚, in a commanding performance) investigating a heinous crime-which he committed himself. Both a penetrating character study and a disturbing commentary on the draconian crackdowns by the Italian government in the late 1960s and early '70s, Petri's kinetic portrait of surreal bureaucracy is a perversely pleasurable rendering of controlled chaos. DUAL-FORMAT BLU-RAY AND DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES  New 4K digital restoration by the Film Foundation, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray  Archival interview with director Elio Petri, conducted by critic and filmmaker Alexandre Astruc  Elio Petri: Notes About a Filmmaker (2005), a ninety-minute documentary on the director's career, featuring interviews with friends, collaborators, and filmmakers  New interview with film scholar Camilla Zamboni  Investigation of a Citizen Named Volont‚ (2008), a fifty-minute documentary about actor Gian Maria Volont‚  Music in His Blood, an interview with composer Ennio Morricone from 2010, conducted by film critic Fabio Ferzetti  Trailers  New English subtitle translation  One Blu-ray and two DVDs, with all content available in both formats  PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Evan Calder Williams and excerpts from a 2001 book by author and screenwriter Ugo Pirro"
