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 Volonté, 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.

I recommend to watch this film to all interested in italian film making.
It a piece of art.
The dvd box by criterion is full of content with an amazing documentary about the life of the director.
Don't miss it, it's awesome
This fascinating, ultra magnetic portrait of a power crazy (and just plain crazy) murderer who also happens to be a Police Chief is made absorptive due to its distinctive visual style perfectly matched to a lively and infectious Ennio Morricone score (see Treasured Appearances).
Excellent Blu-ray transfer. Region A locked.
