Silent Action - 1975 - 6/10
AKA - La Polizia Accusa: il Servizio Segreto Uccide
Opening the film, one by one, high level military brass are assassinated.
Headlines scream, “Murder or Suicide!”
The lead inspector, on the trail of a potential witness, knows not to trust anyone outside or within the police ranks.
Very good Euro-Crime thriller.
This is not Giallo. No hyper colors, no trendy fashion, few hyper-sexualized victims.
Here, plotting, intricate and coherent, is paramount. Focus always stays with the investigators.
Silent Action would be a solid introduction to this genre for the curious…
If you can find it, get the version with audio commentary by Mike Malloy.
