'I Pugni in Tasca' (Fists in the Pocket) Marco Bellocchio, 1965 108 mins Language: Italian with English subtitles 'Fists in the Pocket' was 27-year-old Bellocchio's startling debut feature. Released to much controversy, it tells a disturbing story of madness, murder and incest within a bourgeois family living in a small provincial town. It is a mesmerising indictment of the destruction of moral values that the director observed in Italian society. Lou Castel gives an intense performance as the epileptic youngest son Alessandro, driven to frenzied acts of violence.
