Tenebrae. Astonishingly violent thriller from Dario Argento. The story takes a backseat to a series of deliriously realised on-screen deaths. There is some subtext where Argento answers the charges of misogyny that had been levelled at him by some critics but it doesn't amount to anything. Regardless, this is the last word in Giallo. 9/10.

 

I love Argento's films, they are usually badly acted, dont make any sense storyline wise but are still brilliant.

 

Try "Profondo Rosso" and "Opera".

Isn't this film still banned in Britain? I'm sure I read somewhere that the BBFC still refuses to give it a certificate. I saw it years ago as child when it was a "video nasty"

I've seen most of his more "famous" stuff aside from 4 Flys on Grey Velvet.

 

The stories usually make a bit of sense but tend to be so flimsy as to be pointless, Inferno being the exception as that has no-story-whatsover.

 

You might already be aware but Brian De Palma who is best known for Scarface and the Untouchables did a nice sideline in copying Argento with Body Double/Sisters/Dressed To Kill/The Fury/Raising Cain. All of these are Argento films in every way* aside from the lack of dodgy English dubbing.

 

 

 

*bad acting/over the top music/bravau camera movement/drawn out or over the top demises

Not sure. I think that mine which I've had for awhile is from the US, though amazon.co.uk are stocking what they say is an uncut version anyway.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 10/10

 

Excellent crime/mystery film with some very dark scenes. Was gripped throughout. Looking forward to the other two films.

 

And on a sidenote can I say how nice it was to go watch a film where nobody talked, played with mobile phones or noisily stuffed their faces with food. Make more films 18-rated and subtitled... :D

The Lovely Bones - not what i expected. Some drawn out "flowery" bits but all in all very good.

7.5/10

Shutter Island - loved it!! DiCaprio was brilliant. Very tense and dark with lots of twists. Be interesting to watch it a second time knowing how it ends.

9/10
