          I just wished I liked HEROIN BUSTERS more than I do, or I would be super-excited to get this, whereas THE BIG RACKET? That movie freakin’ DELIVERS!

            I love the way that Fabio Testi goes undercover in Heroin Busters by cunningly wearing a denim jacket with someone else's name on the back. Castellari is the one big Italian cult director that I have difficulty getting in to.
            I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

              finally! racket is one of my fav poliziescos and heroin busters is a big guilty pleasure with a kickass score by goblin. weird choice by arrow to release only those two though and not grabbing street law and high crime for a complete enzo g. crime box set. I mean I already bought the other two on blu-ray so it's perfect for me, but street law and high crime had no official UK hd-release yet afaik ... so it's kinda odd.

                If I'm remembering correctly, I think Studio Canal owns the UK rights for 'High Crime'. They submitted it to the BBFC a while back, suggesting a release might be on the cards, but then just released a cut/botched version in France, and, uh, nothing further since then as far as I'm aware...?
