Danger: Diabolik

Were it not for Mystery Science Theater 3000 there is probably no way that I would ever have discovered this movie, and that would have been too bad. It’s a delirious psychedelic sixties Italian movie based on a comic strip about a super thief. It stars John Phillip Law, who also starred in Barbarella – which is also a sixties movie based on a comic strip. It has an easy listening pop soundtrack. Mostly, however, it has a kind of strange cool.

As we watched it tonight I commented to Amanda “Diabolik is what Batman would have been if he had turned to crime.”
