With this unambitious but entertaining giallo, Dario Argento proves he can still thrill an audience.
...a weak carbon copy that'll leave even the most passionate Argento follower wishing they had just watched the far superior originals.
With the film's taut suspense, witty humor, and alluring leading ladies, I'm sure Hitchcock would bestow his dry approval.
A superfluous but tasty treat before the deep dish of Argento's upcoming conclusion to his Three Mothers Trilogy.
Argento's love letter to Hitchcock. It seems more of a Hitchcock movie than an Argento movie. It had more suspense than horror and gore pieces. The music and camera work was very much like Hitchcock films, which is good. I saw tributes to Rear Window, Strangers on a Train (obviously!), Psycho, Dial M for Murder, Vertigo, and probably others, but I'm not a huge Hitchcock fan. There should've been a fat bald man cameo too. It also had the made for TV feel, as if it were an episode of some anthology series. The lead character Giulio was a bit annoying with his need to involve himself in everything. During the video store scene, I enjoyed looking at the movies and posters they chose to display. This movie must've been sponsored by Torino, because it's all over the end credits.
It's sad to watch one of your heroes worst pieces of art. Without the numerous Hitchcock references, it would be almost completely without any intrigue. It is shot in a very basic and unimaginative way, a sloppy effort all around. The acting is terrible and the story is just too obvious and predictable.
This TV movie is a surprisingly successful and thoroughly entertaining homage to Alfred Hitchcock by the man often erroneously dubbed the Italian Hitchcock, Dario Argento. The plot, a fusion of Rear Window and Strangers on a Train, is (predictably) full of holes, but the film never aspires to be anything more than a bit of fun. It's arguably the best thing Argento's done since The Stendhal Syndrome which, admittedly, isn't that strong a recommendation.
Entertaining, cheap, made for tv homage from the italian pupil Dario Argento to the genuine master of cinema. cool nods to many of his masterpieces.
