Live like a cop, die like a man( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in Italian and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Referenced in Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2, Uomini Si Nasce Poliziotti Si Muore (Live like a cop, die like a man, 1976) opens with an insane motorcycle chase that was filmed in rush hour in downtown Rome with no permission from the local authorities. To top it off, this is one of the most violent and unconventional Italian style action films of its time. The credit goes to the director, Ruggero Deodato, best known for his infamous and censored film Canibal holocaust, and the scriptwriter Fernando Di Leo, author and director of some of the best Italian gangster films from the 70s such as Caliber 9, The boss and The Italian connection. Never before in film history have we seen such nihilistic and pathological behavior from protagonists, who in this film happen to be two policeman: Alfredo (Marc Porel) and Antonio (Ray Lovelock) members of an anti-crime squad who shoot down their assailants even before they have committed a crime

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Italian and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desperately sought after, the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, action packed film Shoot first, die later is known as one of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made. Luc Merenda gives the performance of his career as a highly regarded police detective who is taking syndicate money in exchange for departmental favors. His father, a simple man, also works for the department but on a lower rung; he isn't jealous of his son, but rather proud of him, little knowing that he's a crooked cop. A series of events leads the young detective to ask his father for a favor (he wants a certain police report that is desired by the syndicate) and it doesn't take long for the detective's father to realize his son is on the take ... which leads to numerous complications

Fernando Di Leo crime collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in Italian and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fernando Di Leo was a prolific filmmaker who explored the political extremism and mafia corruption in Italy during the 1970's. Master of garish, intricately plotted, ultra-violent stories about pimps and petty gangsters, Di Leo has perfected the genre with an uncanny accuracy. Di Leo's films demonstrate the degradation of the working classes and how the mafia corrupted them. Though he slipped out of public consciousness after his death in 2003, his works have been revived and shown at the Tate Modern in London and The Venice Film Festival where Quentin Tarantino admitted that Di Leo truly inspired him to make gangster films. Contained in this box set: Naked violence (I Ragazzi del Massacro, 1969), Shoot first die later (Il Poliziotto E Marvio, 1974), and Kidnap syndicate (La Citta Sconvolta. Caccia Spietata ai Rapitori, 1975)
