  • Description

    Salvatore Giuliano can be seen as a Citizen Kane-like portrait of a man by those who knew him but is also as a crime film about the mafia and their entanglements with politics and corruption. Francesco Rosi's influential (it's style can be seen as a strong precursor to The Battle of Algiers) film is, according to Rosi, best explained by the original title: Sicily 1943-60, a stunning investigative portrait that would form the template for his later films.

    Telling the story of Salvatore Giuliano, Italy's most wanted criminal who is found dead with a hand gun and rifle by his side, Rosi's films asks difficult questions and courted much controversy in Italy upon release. Filming in the exact locations, utilising original court reports as well as casting the actual persons involved Rosi garnered stunning performances from his part non-professional crew but also from his stars, Frank Wolff (Once Upon a Time in the West) and Salvo Randone (Satyricon).

    Stunningly shot by Gianni di Venanzo (Fellini's 8½), the film was never released in the UK despite glowing reviews; 'outstanding' (Variety), 'one of the most courageous things the Italian cinema has ever attempted' (Sight and Sound), 'the most aesthetically satisfying and inventive film of its type in many years' (Monthly Film Bulletin), finally it can now be appreciated in a stunning new 4K restoration.

    Special Features:

    • New 4K film restoration carried out with support from Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation at the Cineteca di Bologna film laboratory
    • Newly created and exclusive content
    • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned by Jay Shaw
