The Tenth Victim 1965 12

93 mins Italy Director. Elio Petri

Marcello Mastroianni is the victim and Ursula Andress the hunter in Elio Petri’s sexy ‘60s sci-fi, which predates The Hunger Games, Battle Royale, et al, with its depiction of a televised assassination spectacle, The Big Hunt.

Petri’s stunning pop art production design and archly satirical tone result in a flamboyant spectacle that harbours some subversive bite alongside its undoubtedly kitsch charm.
