Lackluster and shallow
30 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Those expecting a deeper look into the content of Argento's movies in this 71 minute documentary will be thoroughly disappointed -- the movie mostly concerns with the technical aspects of Dario's movies (special effects, crane shots, etc), and choke-full with footage from his movies. I'm not exaggerating -- this documentary shows us minutes upon minutes of scenes from Argento movies for no good reason literally wasting our time.

The biggest disappointment is the lack of insight into the themes of Argento's work -- though, admittedly, there is some of it, but it obviously wasn't the main concern of the guys behind the documentary. All in all, it is a very shallow look into the subject.
