Francesco Rosi's "Salvatore Giuliano" (1961) is a documentary-style Italian drama chronicling the rise and fall of one of Italy's most beloved criminals. On July 5, 1950, the body of real-life Mob chieftain Salvatore Giuliano was found in Castelvetrano, Sicily, punctured with bullet holes. His career is recalled in flashbacks, revealing a colorful portrait of a legendary criminal. Exploring the complex relationship of crime and politics, this film inspired a real-life investigation into Mob activities in Sicily.
