Synopsis:
The 1970's were a time of intense uncertainty and instability in Italy. Political corruption and widespread acts of left and right-wing terrorism, alongside a breakdown in social cohesion and a loss of trust in public institutions such as the government and police, created a febrile atmosphere of cynicism, paranoia and unexploded rage. Throughout this period, these sentiments found expression in a series of brutal, often morally ambiguous crime thrillers which tapped into the atmosphere of violence and instability that defined the so-called 'Years of Lead'.

Colt 38: Special Squad (1976)
In this Poliziotteschi, a commissioner (Marcel Bozzuffi) forms a secret motorized brigade in order to fight a dangerous terrorist (Ivan Rassimov) depositing bombs in the city of Turin.
Highway Racer (1977)
A hot-shot police driver has more guts than brains, often landing him in hot water with his middle-aged mentor, who was once a legendary police interceptor responsible for numerous large scale arrests.
