Movie Reviews

An amazing Docu-
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An innovative look at Argento, his films, techniques and equipment. Directed by his understudy, Michelle Soavi, the same man who brought us The Church and Cemetery Man, one cannot be dissapointed. The DVD clarity brings clips from such films as Tenebre and Bird with the Crystal Plumage into incredible eye candy. The documentary interviews Argento and Stilvetti, the transfer is great. It's a fun watch especially for Argento fans, wether just starting out or groupies. Also vey fun for fans who aren't into documentaries. Check it out~"
Welcome To Dario Argento's World Of Horror
John Peterson | Marinette, WI USA | 03/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those who follow Dario Argento's movies one wonders where his ideas for inspiration comes from. This documentary, directed by Michele Soavi, shines a new light on Argento's approach to filmmaking. Just about every facet is covered; he explains in great detail what frightened him when he was a child, his choice of music, his crew (with crew members themselves explaining their roles and equipment they used), his dreams (and nightmares), why the close up of every murderer's hand are always his, and the main reason why he wants to make movies (I won't give it away), all interspersed with scenes from his movies (and behind the scenes from his movies). After watching this, one can't help but be in awe of the man and his films. The extras on this DVD are skimpy (only Argento's filmography, not even an acknowledgement to Michele Soavi) but the feature more than makes up for it. Three cheers for Michele Soavi for making this documentary and a big thank you to Dario Argento for your blood, sweat, and tears that goes into each and every film you do."
Well done documentary on a great director
John Peterson | 04/17/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is basically a documentary about Dario Argento and the making of his films, but it is great. Not boring like a lot of documentary's, and (actually, you people got it wrong, Argento didn't direct this) Argento protogee Michele Soavi showed his genuine talent even this early on. It contains mostly information on "stylized shots" like the long shot in Tenebre where the camera explored the exterior and interior of a house without cutting, and also examines some of the better murder scenes Argento has made. It's also pretty damn scary, cause you get to find out what actually goes on inside of Argento's head."
