 By day, Ovidio (Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro) and his two friends work at a data center. After work, they blow off steam by committing random acts of savage violence, swiftly graduating from sparking a riot at a football game to vehicle theft, assault, and murder. The police are convinced this recent spate of crimes is politically motivated, but world-weary veteran Commissario SantagĂ  (Enrico Maria Salerno, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) suspects a far more terrifying explanation: that these young men are motivated by nothing more than boredom and disaffection with civilized society. Savage Three combines unrestrained brutality with biting social commentary to create a tense and frightening portrait of modern man and his innate capacity for violence.
