On the PREMIERE episode of WILD IN THE STREETS: A EUROCRIME PODCAST we’re looking at the two films which kick off Roberto Curti’s essential book Italian Crime Filmography, 1968-1980: 1968’s Bandits in Milan, as well as 1968’s Bandits In Rome! The first film takes a documentary approach to a real-life incident that took place in Milan, Italy in 1967 while the second film starts John Cassavetes as a bandit with a heart of gold who is locked away while his partner goes on a violent rampage. What did we think? Listen and find out!

While Scene of the Crime was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes it’s fallen into relative obscurity in the decades since, despite starring Catherine Deneuve and being directed by the legendary André Téchiné (and co-written by Olivier Assayas!). On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS our hosts try to work out why films are sometimes forgotten, and whether SCENE OF THE CRIME is worthy of rediscovery. Let’s check it out!
