The Ruthless Trailer

"I can honestly say I've never killed someone who didn't deserve it." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an Italian crime drama titled The Ruthless, also known as Lo Spietato in Italian (which just translates to The Ruthless). Set in Milan in the 1980s, the film tells the story of a rebellious teen named Santo Russo who grows up to become one of the city's most ambitious criminals. Riccardo Scamarcio stars as Santo Russo, with a cast including Sara Serraiocco, Valentine Payen, Alessio Praticò, Marie-Ange Casta, Fulvio Milani, and Alessandro Tedeschi. This looks as intense and as brutal as you'd expect for another Italian mafia film, with some of the usual gritty touches. Those greedy mobsters always try to take too much.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Renato De Maria's The Ruthless, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

NARCOS condensed into a one short and sweet package.

Italian gangsters and the mafia has never been an interesting genre for me. Even it Scorsese and DeNiro and Coppola are doing them. So I can't generate much interest in this one.
