Even those who get the joke here may find it wearing thin after a while.
In turning to the giallo with their new film The Editor, an especially mean-spirited horror subgenre, the filmmakers leave an especially bad taste.
The Editor does its best to out-genre the genre, lovingly piling ridiculous complications and demented flashbacks on top of unconvincing dubbing, perfect genre references and plenty of nudity and gore.
It's not as much fun as it should be, and while you can certainly admire the skill of the filmmakers in adhering to giallo conventions, you need to be in a midnight-movie frame of mind to really appreciate this film.
The Editor utilizes purposely horrendous acting, preposterously amusing gore, and downright absurd comedy and assembles every ridiculous fragment into this delightfully brilliant film that somehow works as both a tribute and an uproarious comedy.
The giallo satire we've all been waiting for. All 19 of us.
a knowing pastiche of the giallo genre, so incoherent and ridiculous it could almost pass for the genuine article... felt at times overstretched and perhaps could have done after all with the touch of "the world's greatest editor".
...ultimately a tedious disaster that's consistently unable to justify its feature-length running time...
The Editor is probably the coolest film you'll see this year and one you'll want to partake of again and again and yet again.
The Editor starts off as a pitch-perfect Giallo spoof, but struggles to consistently maintain the same perverse entertainment factor until the film's bloody finale.
A well worked and occasionally well-sustained satire of the wonderfully sleazy Italian murder-mystery melodramas from the 1960s to the '80s ...
