The inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s early films, Fernando Di Leo is the master of garish, intricately plotted, ultra-violent stories about pimps and petty gangsters who perfects the genre with an uncanny accuracy. For the first time digitally restored and remastered in collaboration with the Venice Film Festival, 4 of Fernando Di Leo’s masterpieces in one box set. Includes CALIBER 9, THE ITALIAN CONNECTION, THE BOSS, and RULERS OF THE CITY.
Mr. Di Leo's characters are compulsive social animals, surrounded by friends, family and sexually aggressive women. --The New York Times
The maestro of mafia mayhem --Entertainment Weekly
Some of the strongest influences on Quentin Tarantino's early films, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, were the stylized, hyper-violent '70s crime dramas by Italian director Fernando Di Leo that focused on small-time crooks with tenuous life expectancies. Pulp Fiction's assassin duo of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson bear a striking resemblance to the equally implacable, though decidedly more taciturn, pair of Henry Silva and Woody Strode in 1972's The Italian Connection. --USA Today
