Good Documentary on Argento
12 February 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Dario Argento: An Eye for Horror (2000)

*** (out of 4)

Good documentary not only interviews Argento himself but we also get a wide range of people who show up to give their thoughts on the Italian master. These people include John Carpenter, George Romero, Tom Savini, Claudio Simonetti, Daria Nicolodi, Piper Laurie, William Lustig, Jessica Harper, Keith Emerson, Alice Cooper, Claudio Argento, Fiore Argento and Asia Argento. The documentary does a pretty good job at looking at Argento's career from his writing credits on ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST all the way up to SLEEPLESS, which we see when it's in production. Along the way we get to hear some pretty nice stories about the making of DEEP RED, SUSPIRIA, TENEBRE, OPERA, TRAUMA and TWO EVIL EYES. I was a little surprised to see how much is talked about in regards to some of his later work and this includes quite a bit on TWO EVIL EYES where we get a pretty funny story from Savini about Harvey Keitel's lawyers getting in touch with them about something. Another good story comes from Romero who talks about their meetings for DAWN OF THE DEAD. One of the most fascinating parts could make for its own documentary and it's when Asia talks about how uncomfortable she was with the nudity that her father made her do in TRAUMA. She then mentions how Dario had killed her mother in several films, killed her sister in a movie and how she was raped in a couple movies. As she said, this here is quite bizarre. DARIO ARGENTO: AN EYE FOR HORROR certainly isn't detailed enough to be the end all on the director but it's a pretty good tribute with enough famous faces to make it worth viewing.
