Another hugely worthwhile Lenzi/Milian Euro-crime collaboration
24 January 2014 | by Weirdling_WolfSee all my reviews

'Banda Del Gobbo' aka 'Brothers Till We Die' (1978) is another eminently worthwhile Lenzi/Milian poliziotto collaboration with a particularly demonstrative performance from the legendary Milian, this time zestfully portraying a disparate duo of misfit siblings ('Il Gobbo & 'Er Monnezza). Happily he dons the same bodacious pimp fright wig from Stelvio Massi's 'Destruction Force', thus allowing the viewer to swiftly differentiate the aesthetic and moral differences betwixt the two titular characters! Milian obsessives and enthusiastic Euro-crime addicts will find this particularly rambunctious entry in Lenzi's extensive poliziottesco pantheon to be well worth the effort of tracking it down. I feel it would be a gross musical injustice to not mention the sublime crime funk brilliance of Franco Micalizzi's monstrously effective and infectiously funky soundtrack, it must also be said that the recent, and quite stunning 88Films Blu-ray restoration is a lurid beauty!
