Revolver 1972

One of Ennio Morricone’s greatest themes, lifted by Tarantino for his Inglorious Bastards film, and some sumptuous photography set a classy mood for this terse thriller from Sergio Sollima, also known by the more lurid title Blood In The Streets. Oliver Reed plays Vito, a prison warden whose wife is kidnapped. The deal is for Vito to exchange  criminal Milo (Fabio Testi) for his wife, but Vito strikes back by kidnapping Milo for himself. Revolver is an original plot idea and lots of sweaty tension; the action is sparse, but the plotting and two muscular central performances make this a minor classic.
