Opera ★★★★

Film 25:

Rewatch:

Dario Argento's swan song of a giallo. When Argento is on, he is on and reminds us why he is the best at what he does. On a visual level this film is stunning, and contains many Argento hallmarks. The camera movements are graceful and exquisite. The murder set pieces are stylish and brutal. The only thing that always feels jarring upon revisiting each time is the use of heavy metal during the murder scenes. It just never feels like it fits, and as my partner said this time, for a film about opera it really takes you out of things score wise. That being said its still Argento at the height of his abilities and deserving of praise.
