Watch Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970)

Great Crime with a great cast, a good storyline and above all: the most funny dialogues ever. Drama category did not create a better movie and you can now watch for free on Toppmovies. Elio Petri has several directorial successes. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. I'm not a true fan of Crime, but I'm like that too!. Last time I bought this movie in a blu-ray quality, so I decided to upload the full movie here.... Show more
