I realise that this film is considered one of the best and perhaps archetypal Argento film, containing many of the classic elements central to his oeuvre. However for me it was nothing more than just that, a collection of elements. Having seen Crystal Plumage and Cat O' Nine Tails, I was disappointed at how similar the story is again here. Identical structure, too many similarities, same problems (saggy middle). I wish Argento had left his comfort zone more often. The best part? Goblin's music.

I'm surprised I don't hear people talk about this movie more. It definitely rises above some of the more famous "classics" like Friday the 13th. The only bad things I'll say are that the ending is kind of unsatisfying, and the background music is really strange. Like, sometimes mood-breaking.

Finally I got to see Argento's "masterpiece", and I guess I can remove the apostrophes. Elegant as few. The soundtrack and cinematography are the stars in this one, Argento is like a majestic painter with the camera... Irresistibly tough.

Slick, stylish, decadent, suspenseful thriller, with a disquieting atmosphere that continually puts its audience, like its victims, off-balance. Hemmings's character owes much to his role in Antonioni's _Blow Up_.

From disturbing hidden paintings to maniacal robot children, every now and then Argento throws something really exciting at you. The acting is a mixed bag, with some truly horrible comic banter, but for the most part it's okay. The photographic style and visual imagery was impressive. The Goblin score is cheesy, but not in a profoundly detrimental way. Overall I didn't like it as much as Plumage (which this film is awfully similar to) but it hasn't dissuaded me from checking out more Argento.

Deep Red's a lesser work than the supreme likes of Argento's finest films -- Suspiria, Opera and Sleepless -- but such a fact takes nothing away from its individual achievements. It's another audaciously structured, visually superlative work of Giallo cinema from one of Italy's finest filmmakers.

Stoops to tedium here and there, and the ending is downright silly, but Argento's style has magic about it, and even the silly bits have camp allure. Worthwhile.

A Manhunter meets Don't Look Now meets... well Dario Argento. Fun and entertaining, but also confusing (especially language-wise), poorly acted and over-stylish.

Damn fantastic use of the medium. The colour, the camera movement, the score, every aspect of the aesthetic composition is exactly as it should be to inspire a reaction from the audience. The content itself doesn't really merit 2 hours but it's a minor complaint and completely forgivable for such great presentation.

Forget Suspiria, THIS is Dario Argento's masterpiece. It's about a British jazz pianist in Rome who witnesses the brutal cleaver murder of a psychic woman. He ends up as a suspect and teams up with a female journalist to unravel the crime and prove his innocence. Typical of Argento, this is a slow paced two hours of lush visuals (including a few nasty killings) that doesn't make a ton of sense, leading up to the final 5 minutes which explains everything and throws in a nice shocker.

Easily Argentos' best. Mirrors loads of classic horror and thriller films but has a style all its' own. Hemmings is pure cool.
