The 10th Victim
Elio Petri, 1965
Italy | Format: 35mm | 92 minutes

In the fabulous future, legalized assassins compete at hunting each other down in a globe-trotting show called The Big Hunt. The latest match-up is a doozy: a blond Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress play the computer-selected killers. Italian master Elio Petri’s snazzy entry in 1960s Pop Art–inflected cinema plays out as a satire on mass media, but also partakes of the glamorously weary romantic affairs of the jet-set. Bonus bit of New York history: the opening was shot on the demolition site of the old Penn Station.
