Best friends Olivio (Joe Dallesandro), Giacomo (Gianfranco De Grassi) and Peppe (Guido De Carli) all have nice jobs at the same computer analysis company, are well-educated yet young enough to have a bright future ahead of them, all are in stable relationships, ... and every now and again, they meet up just to go completely unhinged and play pranks that aren't within the confines of the law anymore, like stealing cars or motorbikes for joyrides. And during one such "joyride", they start an altercation with a truckdriver, who taken by road rage threatens to kill them, upon which Ovidio stabs him to death with a screwdriver. At first, all three of them are in shock of course, but that's replaced with surprise that the police isn't at all on their trail - inspector Tamaraglio (Umberto Ceriani) actually suspects a political motive behind the murder -, and it gives them a natural high, so they decide to keep killing. And at first nobody's really interested, as they keep themselves to low-lives like pimps and prostitutes, and the more of a spectacle they make out of the murders, the less the police seems to catch any clues they leave - all but past-his-prime disgraced inspector Santaga (Enrico Maria Salerno), with whom the theories about political murders don't really fly ...

Olivio, Giacomo and Peppe only start to get into trouble when they rape and kill two women (Carmen Scarpitta, Ada Pometti), one of whom later turns out to be the wife of a politician, and Peppe has been seen at the scene of the crime, as now the police finally see cause to really investigate - but of course, as long as Peppe doesn't do anything stupid, the police isn't likely to get on his trail. But how long will it take until Peppe to messes up under pressure ...

 

Now this is not a film that's going to leave you cold. Now on the surface, it's just a very cynical thriller, with its three "protagonists" being just very despicable human beings - but what really makes this film quite so unnerving is that it isn't just a piece of exploitation that is created to titilate the viewer with shocking images but it's a film filled with social commentary, some specific to the era and area, but other more universal and thus hitting home to this day. On top of this, the film works quite so well because it doesn't present the viewer with a clear good-and-evil dichotomy but makes its murderous protagonists somewhat relatable while most of the policemen look like buffoons. In all, a film that will get you thinking and will stay with you for a few days, and not only for that well worth a watch.
