( aka "The Nada Gang" or "Sterminate gruppo Zero" )

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/direct-chair/chabrol.htm
France 1974


"As a sophisticated analysis of pressing contemporary events, the whole thing seems rather silly, until you start spotting Chabrol's wicked, misanthropic irony, and you wonder if the old boy hasn't done it after all. Never take Chabrol's glittering surfaces at face value. The massacre scene is deeply cynical, shocking, brilliant cinema."

Comments
This is anamorphic transfer and pretty good one.  Probably the best transfer in the collection.  Good colors - not as washed out as the previous anamorphic transfers. Good sound (French as well as English and Spanish dubs and English subtitles).  Non-anamorphic trailer in English, filmographies copied from IMDB and a short still gallery are the extras on the disc.

* NOTE:

What are the little black spots on the film? ( see capture #2 - upper right corner ) These marks are call "cigarette burns" or "Cue Blips". They tell you when one reel is about to end. The first mark appears seven seconds before the film is about to end and again one second before that reel finishes. In the middle of the film, when on reel is about to end and time to start the next reel going, the projectionist sits and waits for the burns to appear. When they do so, the projectionist has approximately seven seconds to start the next reel going on the second projector without people noticing.
