From the beginning, with a credits sequence set against a background of stark, stylized black and white illustrations while we hear the driving yet haunting theme song, this movie grabs you. If you are already a fan of the "giallo" genre, you will be delighted by this film. If you're not, or don't know the genre, don't expect much in the way of a coherent plot or continuity, just lose yourself in the studied weirdness of the individual sequences. This film is particularly interesting as it has a certain "hip" and even political sensibility that gives it a real late 60s/early 70s feel. Neat music!
