In 1976 the Giallo craze was in full swing in Italy, and the more adventurous American fans were already hip to Dario Argento »

DVD Review: Deep Red

31 January 2016 12:52 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Continuing Arrow Video's campaign to reinvigorate ageing giallo exploitation cinema with the freshness of high definition, Dario Argento's Deep Red is released today on Blu-ray disc. Beginning with the violent slaughter of a psychic, Argento's cult thriller soon develops into a gripping detective murder mystery following music teacher Marcus Daly (David Hemmings) and his flirtatious, sensual reporter 'partner' Gianna (Argento regular Daria Nicolodi). As with Suspiria and Inferno, Argento once again skilfully dances along the line between high and low film art. This isn't to say by any means that his films lack intelligence, but their greatest success is that they don't smugly call attention to their complexity.

Blu-ray Review – Deep Red (1975)

25 January 2016 2:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deep Red, 1975.

Directed by Dario Argento.

Starring David Hemmings, Daria Nicolodi, Gabriele Lavia, Macha Méril, and Clara Calamai.

Synopsis:

After a psychic is murdered a witness teams up with a reporter to catch the killer.

For anybody already versed in the works of Italian filmmaker Dario Argento then Arrow Video releasing a 4K restoration of his 1975 masterwork Deep Red (a.k.a. Profondo Rosso) will be one of the most welcome releases of the year. To those who have only seen Argento’s more recent output – such as the unintentionally hilarious Giallo or the godawful Dracula 3D – and aren’t quite up on why the director is held in such high regard by genre fans and critics alike then this lavish package of what is perhaps his most revered film (this or Suspiria – it’s a tough one to call, although Tenebrae is this writer’s personal favourite) is a »

‘Deep Red’ 4K Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

24 January 2016 11:27 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: David Hemmings, Daria Nicolodi, Gabriele Lavia, Macha Méril, Eros Pagni, Giuliana Calandra, Piero Mazzinghi, Glauco Mauri, Clara Calamai | Written by Dario Argento, Bernardino Zapponi | Directed by Dario Argento

If you were asked to recommend a good Giallo film, chances are you’d look to one of Dario Argento’s films as a good start. Arrow’s release of the 4k remaster of Deep Red is a new box set that is not only one of the best Giallos from the director, but also one of Arrow Video’s best releases in recent months.

When Marcus Daly (David Hemmings) witnesses the murder of one of his neighbours as he stands in the street below, he rushes to her aid. Unable to save the woman he looks for clues as to who the murderer is. The only thing he can remember is a painting that seems to be missing from the woman’s apartment. »

Movie Poster of the Week: “The Man Who Fell to Earth” and David Bowie in Movie Posters

16 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: UK one sheet for The Man Who Fell to Earth (Nicolas Roeg, UK, 1976). Designed and illustrated by Vic Fair.David Bowie, who left our planet this week, appeared in some 20 movies, but his appearances on movie posters are restricted to just a handful of films. Many of his roles, especially in later years, were cameos or small, but significant, character parts. He memorably played Pontius Pilate in Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Basquiat (1996), and Nikola Tesla in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige (2006); he appeared as himself in films as varied as Christiane F. (1981), Zoolander (2001) and Bandslam (2009); and he was endearingly strange as an FBI agent in the opening section of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992).His most important and iconic film role by far is his starring role as the titular alien in Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth »
