4.0 out of 5 stars Vacation From Hell, January 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fernando Di Leo's: Madness (DVD)
Pity poor Gio Brezzi who's not having a good day. He escapes from prison , kills two farmers for their car and proceeds to a country house where he buried 300 million lire 5 years previous but now finds it occupied by a trio of misfits who he must get out of the way in order to collect the spoils. This is the premise of the latest release from Raro Video ,Director/Screenwriter Fernando Di Leo's 'MADNESS' aka 'VACANZE PER UN MASSACRO'- 1980. Basically a four character play, the film cannot be pinned down to any genre and it may not be for everyone with its doses of kinky sex and violence but you can say one thing, you cannot take your eyes off the screen. The film has a surprisingly good performance by Andy Warhol alumnus Joe Dallesandro as Gio but the real scene stealer is the sex pot performance by actress Lorraine De Selle who sexually manipulates both her sisters husband and Gio. Director Di Leo keeps the movie moving at a rapid clip till its incredible climactic punch line due to an excellent classical rock music score by Luis Enrico Bacalov who scored many a Spaghetti Western including Director Sergio Corbuccis's classic 'DJANGO' -1966 which can now be heard in Director Quentin Tarantino's small hommage to the Euro Western 'DJANGO UNCHAINED'. He completely fills the movie landscape as the score bursts forth endlessly in the background and out of the car radios and transistor radios used by the characters. Raro Video releases the film in a beautiful 1.85 transfer in Italian with English subtitles but skimpy on the extras with a Director Biography and Filmography also found in the illustrated booklet provided within the slipcase. Raro Video deserves kudos for continually releasing the works of this remarkable artist including the fabulous box set of his crime movies this past year and it deserves to be in every Euro fans film collection. Recommended for lovers of offbeat cinema, its more than just a kinky diversion and emerges as an interesting character study between these warped individuals presented by a master filmmaker.
