I've seen "Dillinger Is Dead" and "La Grande Bouffe." Thoughts on his other films? Some have such strange premises that it's hard to predict whether they're delightfully warped or just garbage.

You've seen the most important ones. But i've seen 16 of his features to date, and am still looking forward to the rest. Some of his satiric impulses are a bit out of date, but the anarchic spirit remains fresh, i like my filmmakers to be a bit transgressive too, and he clearly is talented/skilled on the technical side. To sum it up, an original voice! Often too easily overlooked when talking about italian cinema.

Don't Touch the White Woman! Is the next great one, also seek out I Love You and The Flesh
