Hallucination Strip movie sceneItalian filmmaker Lucio Marcaccini’s only film, the 1975 movie Hallucination Strip is a psychedelic crime flick with a social commentary.

Bud Cort (Harold & Maude), in his debut performance, plays Massimo Monaldi, a student involved in political protests and juvenile delinquency. When Massimo steals a valuable tobacco box, he quickly becomes tangled in a dangerous web between the police and the mafia.

Culminating in an extended and elaborately choreographed party sequence, underscored with a trippy soundtrack by Albert Verrecchia, Hallucination Strip excels with it’s not-so-subtle mix of sex, drugs, religion, politics and corruption.

Presented in Italian with English subtitles, the Blu-ray and DVD contain the following bonus features:

-New HD transfer form original 35mm negative
-New and improved English subtitle translation
-Fully illustrated booklet by Nocturno Cinema
-Video interview with the editor Giulio Berruti
