The latest instalment of the Movie Matters Podcast sees us adopting a “smash and grab” approach, so to speak, as we take an impromptu look at director Carlo Lizzani’s proto-poliziotteso thriller WAKE UP AND KILL, a 1966 adaptation of the travails of real-life gangster Luciano Lutring, starring Robert Hoffmann, Lisa Gastoni and Gian Maria Volontè. In addition to subjecting this distinctive entry in the crowded Eurocrime field to our usual in-depth analysis, we also catch up on some belated listener feedback and reveal the latest round of winners in our Blu-ray/DVD lucky dip draw.
The music in this episode is sampled from WAKE UP & KILL (Ennio Morricone) and REQUIESCANT (Riz Ortolani).
