Pacino plays Dupin
The film follows the common story of the crime thrillers films,there's a murder,two cops and a killer.
But Insomnia is a journey into the mind of the criminal and the mind of a violent detective.
The way that Pacino tries to get the answer resembles much of Auguste Dupin,like knowing the words of a killer and so he can know who is the killer and who is not. Pacino plays so well that hard-boiled detective.
Pacino kills his partner in a weird persecution,i have to say that gives to the film a great line,the killer knows something,the cop knows something.
And Williams plays a nervous killer,in the beginning when Pacino and Williams meet,he looks confident,but he is not,he is scared and that is what gives good suspense to this film.
Honestly i expected a twist,common in Nolan Films (Memento,Inception,etc)
If you like crime,detectives,noir films,you must watch Insomnia.
Slasher Forever Slasher
This is the most greatest homage to the 80's horror cinema,killers with mask,sex,alcohol,bizarre murders,past traumas and everything with blood.
I applaud this Wes Craven film,Craven decided to laugh about the way that the slasher genre was exploded in the 80's...
This is a well done slasher,all the rules are followed,shows how the slasher made itself a cult,i mean people who knows the rules of the film,etc (i'm a fan of the slasher).
The spoofs are great,the scene when Randy is watching Halloween is sublime.
By the way it's a great homage,the scene when Craven is dressed like Freddy...
If you like the cheap,bloody slashers,you SHOULD watch Scream.
The Fly (1986)
The Modern Metamorphosis
In The Fly,Cronenberg tells the story of a man who turns into a fly because of the experiment that went wrong. The point of why is this a great film,because is like the modern metamorphosis , Seth is a scientist that makes a teleportation machine,and in one of the tests,pum! a fly enters in the machine and he starts to turn himself into a fly. Bundle is still a human,he feels like anyone and he becomes lonely,the woman he loved left him,and in some way that makes him to believe that he is not a human being anymore,now he is a fly. I think that this film,story,tale,etc,is the modern version in some way of the Franz Kafka Metamorphosis,but now with science...
This movie got that air of B-Movie but is a great great film.
The Best Italian Horror Film
I guess that Argento is one of those horrors directors who can really make a good horror film,i mean,they understand everything that an horror film can be but they don't make common horror films,i mean predictable,they know how to control the atmosphere,the sound,the acting and a original script. This is my favorite Argento movie,i think he is the Italian Carpenter (Carpenter took a lot of things from the Argento's Profondo Rosso - Deep Red)
From the first scene when Susy appears in the airport the atmosphere is unique,the script is very original and the soundtrack,the soundtrack is a "plus" to make this film a classic of the genre.
The final scene when Susy understands everything that happening in the school and she discovers what is the director of the school,i mean that scene is just great,the tension that Argento creates is fantastic.And of course the last scene,the fight of Susy with the Witch is one of the greatest horror scenes.
The acting sometimes is not so great,but this is common on the horror films. Argento is the best Italian horror director.
