Il Diavolo nel Cervello (The Devil in the Brain)
After three movies in the 'spaghetti western' genre and the noir "Città violenta" Sollima then decided to make something unpredictable, and paid the consequences of his resolution: his film out went almost unnoticed, and it's been re-evaluated recently, together with the soundtrack by Ennio Morricone, who had already scored Sollima's previous works.
"Il diavolo nel cervello" works on an almost-full symphonic register: on a strings background we have piano, harpsichord, flutes and brass instruments. It's a very airy work that creates moments of tension, where the pace is dictated solely by jazzy drums played with drum brushes. Undoubtedly, one of the best productions of the Maestro from those early '70s, including Bruno Nicolai as a conductor and the wonderful Edda Dell'Orso singing choirs.
Yet another blend of music and imagery from the Seventies to be rediscovered, here revived in LP format with a gatefold cover and a completely new graphic layout.
