  • GRAND SLAM: An action-packed heist film in the tradition of RIFIFI and TV's MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE series, this adventure centers around an unassuming schoolteacher and his plot--30 years in the making--to steal a diamond cache from a seemingly impermeable Rio de Janeiro vault. He assembles a select group of international specialists to carry out his elaborate, meticulous plan, and all goes accordingly until the group encounters The Grand Slam 70, a super-security system that stands to put a halt to the whole operation. Featuring a cast of Hollywood and international notables, including Klaus Kinski (AGUIRRE: THE WRATH OF GOD, NOSFERATU), Janet Leigh (PSYCHO), Adolfo Celi (THUNDERBALL), and Edward G. Robinson (DOUBLE INDEMNITY, SOYLENT GREEN), this much-imitated film also boasts a stellar score by Ennio Morricone.

    REVOLVER: Veteran Spaghetti Western director Sergio Sollima presents a gritty crime drama of surprising subtlety, a B-movie thriller accompanied by a fantastic score by Ennio Morricone (THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, KILL BILL). Former cop Vito Cipriani (Oliver Reed), who now works as a prison warden, is forced to free a convicted criminal (Fabio Testi, FOUR OF THE APOCALYPSE) when his wife is kidnapped and held ransom. In order to track her down, he must become like the criminals he abhors, and as a kidnapping turns into evidence of government conspiracy, Cipriani takes the law into his own hands. Both Reed and Testi turn in charismatic, powerful performances, and the film is notable for its restraint, painting a portrait of the mostly gray areas between the black and white notions of good and evil.
