Non ho sonno (Sleepless) Reviews
I do think this is a great film, with the director using all of the tricks he has used throughout an amazing career, with the great Italian locations lending weight to the story and atmosphere.
Some of the acting isn't the best, but the two leads are captivating enough to make up for it. Max Von Sydow is perfectly cast as the old detective as is Stefano Dionisi, who also wants/needs to find the killer.
And finally the deaths and murders are in a class of their own! American horror film makers need to take note - this is how to film a slasher movie!
If you like this, check out the aforementioned movies, but also check out Argento's early movies from the seventies which have great twists and the grizzly death scenes. Great movie!
For people unfamiliar with Argento, you can expect some dodgy acting and editing and the occassional questionable accent. But you can also expect great gore and some interesting twists and turns and direction along with some cool music.
Overall, Sleepless is a well crafted horror movie for horror movie fans.
