News & Interviews for Scarlet Diva
Critic Reviews for Scarlet Diva
It's a demented kitsch mess (although the smeary digital video does match the muddled narrative), but it's savvy about celebrity and has more guts and energy than much of what will open this year.
This is such a dazzlingly self-assured directorial debut that it's hard to know what to praise first.
Scarlet Diva has a voyeuristic tug, but all in all it's a lot less sensational than it wants to be.
The film, while not exactly assured in its execution, is notable for its sheer audacity and openness.
This is an egotistical endeavor from the daughter of horror director Dario Argento (a producer here), but her raw performance and utter fearlessness make it strangely magnetic.
"Argento splatters her colorful life on the screen like an adolescent's diary, trusting others to sort through the fascinating mess."
Audience Reviews for Scarlet Diva
I went into this one hoping for an edgy, sexy grimy film, and I got very little of any of those things, as the arty approach to the storytelling is pretty obvious, and there are some truly atrocious line-readings in here, delivery that made me wince here and there as some of the people just sound as if they're reading a menu instead of emoting. I really wanted to like this more than I did, which makes me feel bad for the blind buy. Oh well, I guess this might be a decent rental if you have low expectations.
Fascinating, disturbing, confused. Shows the ugly side of fame - the alienation, betrayal and effects of drug abuse. This film is certainly not glamourous or particularly titilating as might be expected.
Really strange semi-autobiographical darkly dramatic in what sexy Asia Argento stars, directs and writes this weird film. But Asia looks bloody hot in her naked and sex scenes. Whoo!
