Il gatto a nove code

Dario Argento ইতালি, 1971

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Cat o' Nine Tails

While Argento broadens his hypothesis on the notion of sight & sightlessness (which played a big part in the conception of his great debut), this second film is devoid of the stylistic flair & bravura set-pieces that characterised much of the filmmaker's early works. It's by far the most conventional of the animal trilogy; hindered by a convoluted corporate conspiracy & generic style that feels closer to television.
