Boring, dull...
28 April 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

Gawd, it's hard for me to think of Dario Argento as boring in any way, but this weak documentary sure portrays him as such.

Yes, we get lots of shots of Argento filming PHENOMENA with Jennifer Connelly, but not much else. In fact, I didn't hear a lot of discussion about the films he made before SUSPERIA. Films such as DEEP RED; FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET; THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, etc.. all get the short shift.

A definitive Argento biography has yet to be made. You won't find it here.

Get's a 5 on the imdb scale.
