Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (DUAL-FORMAT BLU-RAY AND DVD EDITION)
The provocative Italian filmmaker Elio Petri’s most internationally acclaimed work is this remarkable, visceral, Oscar-winning thriller. Petri maintains a tricky balance between absurdity and realism in telling the Kafkaesque tale of a Roman police inspector (A Fistful of Dollars’s Gian Maria Volonté, in a commanding performance) investigating a heinous crime—which he committed himself. Both a penetrating character study and a disturbing commentary on the draconian crackdowns by the Italian government in the late 1960s and early ’70s, Petri’s kinetic portrait of surreal bureaucracy is a perversely pleasurable rendering of controlled chaos.

Pardon my ignorance but is this a "giallo"? I think I'm confusing this film with another one with a similar title but can't recall which one (but was already released on DVD).


 

RIP Roberto Gomez Bolanos.

This is more of a police procedural. I think you may be thinking of the similar-sounding Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion.


Sealed with a curse as sharp as a knife. Doomed is your soul and damned is your life.
