Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto)
Director: Elio Petri - Italy 1970 - 113 mins, HD (1,85:1) - R18 cert
In Italian with English subtitles
With: Gian Maria Volonté (chief inspector), Florinda Bolkan (Augusta Terzi), Gianni Santuccio (police commissioner), Orazio Orlando (Sergeant Biglia), Sergio Tramonti (Antonio Pace), Arturo Dominici (Mangani), Aldo Rendine (Nicola Panunzio), Massimo Foschi (Augusta’s husband), Aleka Paizi (chief inspector’s maid), Vittorio Duse (Canes), Salvo Randone (plumber), Fulvio Grimaldi (Patané, the journalist), Pino Patti (head of wiretapping)

“Elio Petri’s most compelling films are social satires played out as genre pieces… Citizen, a potent study of power as pathology, is his most successful use of the highly marketable suspense-thriller form. Its protagonist is a psychopathic police chief, an antihero who reflects Fascist ideals that harken back to Il Duce… He cuts the throat of his masochistic mistress, then deliberately plants clues that implicate himself to prove that he’s entirely above suspicion… the man thinks he can commit any crime he wants...

The film is dominated by the mesmerizing performance of Gian Maria Volonté… Hardly ever offscreen, he struts through the entire movie – nattily dressed, smirky, charismatic, simultaneously handsome and repellent as Petri's visually flamboyant film turns into a heady mix of Marx, Freud, Wilhelm Reich, and Brecht, with a bit of Dashiell Hammett thrown into the blender.” — Elliott Stein, Village Voice
