This witty, poker-faced 1965 Italian adaptation of Robert Sheckley's memorable story “The Sixth Victim”—about licensed killing celebrated in the 21st-century media as a spectator sport—has probably dated badly, but that's a good reason to see it. It's derived from the mod S and M ethos of the James Bond films, which it simultaneously parodies and emulates with the help of Marcello Mastroianni (here a platinum blond) and Ursula Andress, both of whom play popular killers. Not nearly as good as Point Blank, but infinitely better than Barbarella. Directed by Elio Petri; the production design by Piero Poletto is pretty funny too. In italian with subtitles. 92 min.
