New widescreen DVD of CONFESSIONS OF A POLICE CAPTAIN
My favorite Italian police drama is CONFESSIONE DI UN COMMISSARIO DI POLIZIA AL PROCURATORE DELLA REPUBBLICA and now there's an U.S. DVD release that has the entire 2.35:1 widescreen picture on view. And the DVD also has a splendid interview with Franco Nero talking about the making of the film and many of his collaborators. As if that wasn't enough, there's a second feature in the package - Spanish director Antonio Isasi's UN VERANO PARA MATAR. It may not be as exciting as his earlier film THEY CAME TO ROB LAS VEGAS, but it inspired Quentin Tarantino enough for him to reused some of its music in KILL BILL Vol. 1.
