September 5, 2020
The film is an entertaining and involving reminder of why Argento has long been recognized as one of the masters of the giallo thriller.

Argento tamps down his more extreme stylist instincts to fashion a somewhat more conventional mystery, albeit with unconventional characters.

Argento reportedly doesn't care much for this picture, but that shouldn't stop the rest of us from enjoying its twisty tale.

The casting is spot-on.

Argento is quoted as saying this wasn't his favorite film creation. Well, never mind that. I like Malden and Franciscus and it's fun watching them fight for justice in an Italian murder mystery.

The film's 9 disparate leads will eventually be synthesised, but on the way there are a lot of blind alleys, false trails & red herrings, as much obscuring as revealing the solution in a manner that recalls the parable of the blind men & an elephant.

For all of Argento's virtuosity, he's no master of suspense or even tension. He's a showman and a stylist and his set pieces are pulp art pieces...

... through the employment of his visual technique, commonality is transformed into remarkable quality.

Set against a backdrop of genetic research and espionage, Argento's formal obsession with allusions to seeing and sightlessness is on fierce display.
