Cry of a Prostitute (1974) <br/><br/>** (out of 4)<br/><br/>Ultra-sleazy and incredibly violent Euro Crime picture starts off with a couple adults and a child being killed in a car crash. It turns out that the child had been dead for some time and his body was sewn-up with drugs hidden in it. Pretty soon two Mafia families are battling with each other when a hit man (Henry Silva) gets in the middle of things.<br/><br/>Andrea Bianchi will always be remembered for the insane BURIAL GROUND as well as the sleazy STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER and if you&#39;re a fan of those films then you&#39;ll certainly want to check this one out even if the end result isn&#39;t nearly as good or as entertaining as those two pictures. What CRY OF A PROSTITUTE lacks in regards to any sort of story it more than makes up with its violence, which at times is rather shocking.<br/><br/>Not only do we get countless shootings and stabbings but there&#39;s also a bizarre mix of sex and violence, which I&#39;m sure would have outraged more people had the film been better known back in the day. There&#39;s some bizarre sexuality at play here including one woman being beaten before sexually pleased and another sequence involving a dead pig! The violence in the film is very much over-the-top and especially with the various shoot outs, which often lead people pouring blood all over the place.<br/><br/>As I said, the sleaze and violence are top-notch and it&#39;s bound to please fans of the genre. Henry Silva also turns in good, strong performance like only he can and the supporting players are fun as well. The biggest problem I had with the film was the screenplay, which wasn&#39;t all that interesting and it certainly didn&#39;t add anything new to the genre. The characters weren&#39;t the most interesting either and the Mafia folks just seem like the ones we&#39;ve seen countless times before.

Where do I begin? Horrendous acting, bad story, amateur directing, and some of the worst editing and cinematography in the history of movie making are the only ways to describe Cry of a Prostitute. The Godfather, this is not. Henry Silva is the lead, and he will not be compared with Brando. He is Tony, a guy who has moved to Italy from Brooklyn with some unknown score to settle. In between, we get several shootouts which result in a lot of dead bad guys. The title refers to a hooker played by Barbara Bouchet; and my two points are for Barbie&#39;s naked body; clearly the high point in this horrible film; avoid this like the plague.

1st watched 4/5/2003 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Andrea Bianchi): Godfather-like Italian movie without good acting, directing or writing. The title will fool you(at least the U.S. released video title-Cry of a Prostitute) because this movie has very little to do about a prostitute except that she is a minor character that pretends to be the wife of one of the many `Don&#39;s&#39; in this movie. This is just a way to get people in the U.S. to rent the video. The story is actually about a man who plays the game with many mafia-type gangs and ends up being the top honcho in the end. It&#39;s very obvious where this movie is going, but there was some interesting things like seeing the actual reason for the family feuds(centering around the mis-treatment of a handicapped boy in one family) that became mafia&#39;s and seeing the reality of their real business&#39;s that become crooked by entering drugs into the business. The emotionless Henry Silva does an ok job in his part but most of the acting was not memorable. Watching this makes me want to see the Godfather, to see how much better it is in it&#39;s storytelling and acting. Not a good reason to give this a thumbs up, though.
