Four Flies on Grey Velvet (4 mosche di velluto grigio) Reviews

March 17, 2015
Possessed camerawork, elliptical editing, and a discordantly playful score (by Ennio Morricone!) conspire against viewers and establish this as one of Argento's most suspenseful efforts.

self-conscious and silly, but directed with such manipulative panache that you too will feel as if you are being strung along by a deranged, sadistic puppetmaster... there are images here that will burn themselves right onto your retina.

As whodunits go, this is more of a "who cares". But as a work of celluloid skill, Four Flies on Grey Velvet has no equal. It's a great, great film.

While the slight story and gore factor rate low, the Argento style is in full flourish. ... Four Flies on Grey Velvet is worthy of all the nostalgic buzz.

There are a few scary moments in the dark. But then there's that image-on-the-retina gimmick, which we can't believe, and a conclusion that's so arbitrary we feel tricked.

As far as Argento films go, none come weirder than the little-seen Four Flies on Grey Velvet.
