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.

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.

The first Argento film I saw and it's a relatively standard mystery-suspense film (with buckets of stylised blood and gore, of course), but it's still really effective and it does feel like it's been a while since I saw a mystery film that actually had a conclusion (I blame Michael Haneke!)

I'm a giallo fan, and this ranks right at the top. For me, it's definitely Argento's best. His use of the POV-camera, as well as the audicious way in which he dared to set up the reveal of the killer, blew me away.

It is wonderfully shot and has an interesting score, but I only wish the story was more fluid. There are times when this is very cool, but there are too many scenes IMO that were a bit dull between them. The acting could have been better too.

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.

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