Instant Gratification Quick Takes: August 4, 2011

Highlighting odd and off-beat new releases to watch instantly on Netflix


New for August 4, 2011

The Boss aka Il Boss aka Wipeout! (1973), directed by Fernando Di Leo, with Henry Silva, Richard Conte, Gianni Garko and Antonia Santilli – Rival gangs fight for control of Italy’s Mafia. The Boss is one in a trilogy of poliziotteschi films directed by Fernando Di Leo, which also includes Milano calibro 9 and La Mala Ordina. (The other two films are available to watch instantly on Netflix under the titles Caliber 9 and The Italian Connection.) I love mob movies and Di Leo is supposedly the master of the genre in his country, so you can bet this is getting pushed to the top of my rather lengthy list of films I intend to watch in the immediate future. (Available until August 2, 2012) [Links: IMDb, GCDB, Clip (NSFW)]
