Danger: Diabolik

3

Pitched somewhere between Bond and Barbarella, this high-tech, high-camp Italian comic book adaptation has lost none of its sexy, ’60s verve. John Phillip Law stars as gimp-suited supercrim Diabolik, robbing the rich to give to Marisa Mell’s blonde bombshell. “There was a sexual undertone to just about everything,” recalls Law on a fun chat-track. Meanwhile, a 20-minute retrospective rustles up comic book experts and the surviving crew to talk about Diabolik’s progression from page to Mario Bava’s screen. Austin Powers fans should give it a spin.
