Dark Glasses

Post by Alex J »

A triumphant return to Frightfest for Dario Argento with a neo-giallo that has a really strong opening act. The middle is more about consequences and relationships, but then returns to its giallo origins including a chase sequence in the third act with a satisfying ending. The score is interesting - early on it's like Carpenter meets Goblin, before transitioning to more modern beats later on that are still effective.

7.5 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

We enjoyed it.
Sure he's done better films but this one is not in that category. I read a couple of mainstream reviews that seemed to be written by people who've never seen an Argento film.
And one even criticised the dog!!!

But also what a charming man.
