Critics reviews

…In this moment, Ercoli alludes to cinema’s ultimate surrealist provocation, but it’s more than a shout out; it’s a manifesto for the gialli, which positions itself as a truly referential mode by synthesizing historically low forms (Hitchcock, genre) with high ones (neorealism, French New Wave) into something paradoxically approaching high-concept art and a progenitor of cinema’s postmodern aesthetics.
