“Its protagonist is a psychopathic police chief, an antihero who reflects Fascist ideals that harken back to Il Duce — for him and for his network of aides and informants, it’s always open season on Maoists, gays, and student radicals. He cuts the throat of his masochistic mistress, then deliberately plants clues that implicate himself to prove that he’s entirely above suspicion. He goes up to total strangers and confesses… Hardly ever offscreen, he struts through the entire movie — nattily dressed, smirky, charismatic, simultaneously handsome and repellent as Petri’s visually flamboyant film turns into a heady mix of Marx, Freud, Wilhelm Reich, and Brecht, with a bit of Dashiell Hammett thrown into the blender.”
Elliot Stein, the Village Voice
