Fist in His Pocket

Fist in His Pocket Movie Poster

Tormented by twisted desires, a young man takes drastic measures to rid his grotesquely dysfunctional family of its various afflictions in this astonishing 1965 debut from Marco Bellocchio.

Charged by a coolly assured style, shocking perversity, and savage gallows humor, "Fists in the Pocket" was a gleaming ice pick in the eye of bourgeois family values and Catholic morality, a truly unique work that continues to rank as one of the great achievements of Italian cinema.
