For a while there Italy was making the best crime thrillers in the world. They were initially inspired by Dirty Harry so you should know what to expect. The subgenre is called Poliziotteschi and there’s a ton of these films to sift through. The Big Racket is one of my top favorites of this style, and I give it my highest recommendation.
NOTE: Unfortunately this movie is not available in HD. The version on Amazon is at least widescreen and looks damn good for SD.
Not available on Blu-ray.
