Profondo rosso

Dario Argento Italya, 1975

Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Derin Kirmizi

Rewatch. A treasure, Argento’s best alongside Inferno, the connective tissue between his gialli and mannerist-expressionist mode. Once the opening credits/music bars begin, the movie *has* you in its insular borghese world. Always loved the dynamic between Hemmings and Nicolodi, and the Villa Scott sequence is a favorite -a specter of art nouveau decadence. Pour a glass of wine, turn off all the lights, and enjoy.
