Didn't find any topic about this film. If there's one sorry. Well my friend watched recently this film and says it's simply fantastic. Don't know much about it except it's very violent and has some very gory murders. As far as I know the only English friendly dvd of Il comorrista is this one, and it's cut. My friend has the full uncut version of the film, without any English audio or subs. Gonna watch it tomorrow. I'd like to hear your spoilers-free thoughts guys.

The UK DVD--issued by Pegasus--is 145 mins, 23 minutes short of the run time listed on IMDB. The version you linked through to is also a UK release on the Nouveau label. At a guess, I would say the Nouveau one would be better quality, as most Pegasus transfers are mediocre at best.

The version my friend has is 164 mins.  It's anamorphic, unlike the Nouveau one, which is fullframe. I remember at one point I was going to order the dvd from xploited. Before buying I asked Tony about a/v quality. He said it didn't look very good and added it was cut.
Tomorrow when I watch the film, I'll post some screenshots here.

Just finished watchin Il comorrista. Right now can't say anything. It's very complex film, at least for me. I need some time to write a proper review.

As I promised here are the screenshots.

SPOILERS INCLUDED!

Never seen this film, should there be a spoiler warning before that multitude of screen shots? I feel like don't need to see the film now.

When posting grabs can we try and stick to a sensible amount please and not give too many spoilers.
