Fernando Di Leo was a prolific filmmaker who explored the political extremism and mafia corruption in Italy during the 1970's. Master of garish, intricately plotted, ultra-violent stories about pimps and petty gangsters, Di Leo's films demonstrate the degradation of the working classes and how the mafia corrupted them. His works have been revived and shown at the Tate Modern in London and The Venice Film festival where Quentin Tarantino admitted that Di Leo truly inspired him to make gangster films. Contained in this box set is the Milieu Trilogy: Calibre 9 (Milano calibro 9, 1972), The Italian Connection (La mala ordina, 1972), and The Boss (Il boss, 1973). Contained exclusively in this box set is Rulers of the City (I padroni della citt`, 1976).
