some nice giallo touches - black gloves, creepy dolls, childhood trauma - but really more of a police procedural thriller with some nice gore touches. on par (or a little better, even) with argento's best recent output.
Eyes of Crystal isn't just the best Giallo in decades but is one of the better ones of the Italian murder-mystery genre ever. Period. As stylistic as the films of Giallo-provocateurs Umberto Lenzi or Sergio Martino, with a unique modern style, Eyes of Crystal is engaging and not bogged down by an overcomplication of its plot web like so much of its type. The murders are also brutal and beautiful, as they should be.
