What I appreciated most about this film was that it scoffed at the idea that Argento is the "Italian Hitchcock", a lazy comparison that often gets used, as the movie points out that Argento's films are far too impressionistic to draw comparisons to Hitch. The only similarity there are killers with gloves, and suspense often happens.
