The pulsating Goblin score is superb here and Argento's camera nicely always seems to creep around. David Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi lack chemistry though as the witness and female reporter who pair up to solve things and Argento bloats his running time to over two hours by having the pair sit around and arm wrestle etc. There are several well done moments of tension throughout, but these moments are heavily diluted by all the yapping.

update and then I may be offline for a few days...

Firstly, welcome to albajos and jdidaco! Thanks for joining in...
Psychotronicbeatnik continues to widen his lead, but Traveller is very game and not giving up easily. Those two have pretty much separated themselves from the rest, but jeroeno has firmly taken over the third spot and could still be threat to the top two. Meanwhile, Tarris1 has overtaken blueboybob, who is backpedaling out of a tight spot on the rail and is approached again on the outside by peeptoad. There has also been some gradual movement from others (perhaps reacting to the late entrance of jdidaco who has debuted into the top half of the field). All others are hanging in there...

As a group of mobsters are killed from the projection booth of a private cinema by a rocket launcher (!), this Italian crime drama gets off to a fantastic start that it seldom lives up to. Henry Silva is not especially effective in the lead role, exhibiting very few emotions, and none of his subsequent hits having anything on his initial one. A drugged up, kidnapped don's daughter who Silva rescues offers some bright moments in the second half though.

24. La belva col mitra [Mad Dog Killer/Beast with a Gun] (1977, Sergio Grieco): 6.5 - Helmut Berger steals the show as the titular psycho criminal on the run. Richard Harrison does the tough good cop, hunting him down, very well. The way Berger somehow is able to escape from the police constantly takes some serious suspension of disbelief.

Misleadingly marketed as Jaws with a whale, this plays out more like Moby Dick. While detestable at first, the protagonist here becomes sympathetic by the end of the film as he comes to genuinely regret murdering the mate of a male orca who keeps coming back to attack him. The film is very much about him forced to face up to his "sin", while we are positioned equally to root for the orca. Great underwater shots and Ennio Morricone music too.

Directed by William Friedkin (of Exorcist fame). Follows a real exorcism in Italy. And holy hell this was terrible. Just awful. Like it's pretty hard to make a documentary this bad. Interviewing the wrong people (i.e., people who aren't experts in what he's asking about). An oppressively boring exorcism. A complete failure in storytelling. Just... wow. :circle:

Argento Double Feature:

13. Opera (1987)

Image

There is a fun layer here in addition to the killings with the opera director being a former horror movie director with amusing audience winking through lines such as "it usually only happens to people in the movies". The film is also gloriously visualised to the point that the script's flaws barely register. From swooping raven POV shots to camerawork that constantly creeps around, the film is aptly voyeuristic. There is also an amazing bullet to the head.

14. Inferno (1980)

Image

This Suspiria sequel has its fair share of effective moments, from trapped underwater, to those rats, to the titular inferno at the end, but it is all fragmented and messy and unlike in Suspiria, there is no mystery as to what exactly is going on. In fact, the extra exposition here hurts the film. Argento still manages to use effective blue, red and purple neon filters, but the effect is nowhere near as immersive and continuous as with Suspiria.

Image

With lots of point-of-view and mobile camerawork, the death scenes are memorable here (see above); the unleashing of evil spirits is also genuinely eerie with a giant cross falling down into a seemingly never-ending abyss. It takes over 40 minutes for this to occur though and the early parts of the film are uneven at best. Tomas Arana is okay as the protagonist in this stretch, but a romance that soon develops is bland, and Asia Argento is wasted.

The plot is confusing here, but if a muddled mess, this is undeniably encapsulating. From steadicam bird attacks to a darkened house of mirrors, the film is lusciously shot and there are several memorable moments, including a grisly eye gouging on a dangerous highway. Young Paige Conner is stunning too, channeling Patty McCormack in The Bad Seed in a nicely ambiguous performance in which we are unsure how much she really knows.

Just realised that TraverseTown has this at #2 on his 500<400 ballot. This guy has the best taste in film. :poshclap: Will add to my own 500<400 shortly.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

ciao peeps,

Would you please provide a ruling on Jesus of Nazareth and how to record it? It was originally broadcast in Italy in five parts, and in the US in two parts but has also been broadcast in every permutation from one to five parts. The Artisan DVD I watched runs 382 minutes and is presented over two discs with only one set each of opening and closing credits. IMDb records it as two episodes. I personally watched it over four nights, in between repeat viewings of Argento films. I'm baffled as to the best way to record this.

As per Mario Bava norm, this looks great and there are some stellar moments in which the lead actress is pursued through foggy exteriors by a shadowy man. The story is extremely second rate though. It is impossible to root for the male protagonist since he brings the horror upon himself, Joseph Cotten lacks mysteriousness as a character whose identity is easy to guess and a subplot with a young girl who has seen the Baron's spirit is oddly neglected.

The first kill is pretty amazing here with an unpredictable second kill happening soon afterwards that throws things in a completely new direction. The upbeat ending also seems bizarre at first but actually works quite well in retrospect. There is a complex double-crossing plot at hand, but with lifeless all round, the film only really excels when in stalking and murdering mode. The killings are at least very memorable - a copulating couple especially.
