  • Dillinger Is Dead

    1969. Italy. Directed by Marco Ferreri. Screenplay by Ferreri, Sergio Bazzini. With Michel Piccoli, Anita Pallenberg, Annie Girardot. Combining surreal imagery and absurdist black humor, Ferreri's masterwork stars Piccoli as a restless and alienated industrial designer who returns home one night to a cold dinner and decides to make himself a gourmet meal. Over the course of the evening, his discovers an old pistol wrapped in a newspaper, and his bourgeois life is turned upside down. This major rediscovery is presented, thanks to Janus Films, in a newly struck 35mm print, in advance of its theatrical run at BAMcinématek in early 2009. In Italian; English subtitles. 95 min.
