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_.

Brilliant & defining giallo with a faint element of the uncanny. Classic Argento with all the style & less of the typical narrative failings. Acting is surprisingly solid & the plot even makes sense. The visual style with flowing camera & feverish color is unmistakable & score is simply brilliant. It's a very rewarding & atmospheric mystery that creatively digs into the themes of memory & perception. On a broader contextual level it's also about gender and the relationship between art & psyche.

It's a bizarre world when Suspiria's more popular than Deep Red. It may not have the intoxicating visual design of Argento's more successful thriller, but Deep Red overall comes out on top by giving more attention to the thing Suspiria neglected: its script. With an immediately psychologically interesting killer (and thus interesting mystery), great chemistry and banter between the two leads that can be surprisingly funny, and excellent creeping camerawork, Deep Red should be a classic thriller.

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.

Heresy though it may be, I prefer The Bird with the Crystal Plumage. And I still prefer Suspiria to that.

The gore scenes are well-done, but overall the film is somewhat longwinded and the plot is not entirely convincing. The soundtrack is very strange.

The bombastic soundtrack and use of color make this movie. It's a by-the-numbers type murder mystery, but man can Goblin rock a scene.

The gore, when it comes, is glorious and the story is justifiably hokey, because what really works is Argento's use of perspective - how reliable, really, is what we're seeing? It points to the uncertainty and (hidden?) depravity in all of us, which makes it awesome.
