    Although it’s not great Argento (for me the last one in that category would be OPERA), SLEEPLESS is the last one he made that I like enough to occasionally return to it, even if it has some goofy elements I find worthy of comparison to NEW YORK RIPPER.

    I will definitely check this one out when it becomes available to me.

    I think even more positively of it now I've had some time to sit on it. I put it on expecting to hate it after the last couple of his films and I think that coloured my viewing experience. I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Stylistically it's pretty dry but otherwise solid giallo. No cgi, lots of tearing latex and syrup.

    This is not the worst film in the world. If it had been made in the 70s it might even have ranked as a minor classic. It wasn't made in the 70s though. At one point my girlfriend walked past and watched for 30 seconds before saying 'can you even call ita giallo with modern cars?' Its a fair point, I wish this had 70s fashion and cool.

    It does have the synth score of an older Argento and there's an almost half hour long stalk at the end that is reasonably tense. The triumvirate of the blind prostitute (she loses her sight because she shares Trumps view of the best way to eclipse watch), the orphan Chinese boy and the murderous seeing eye dog is a winningly loopy giallo construct.

    Characters, motivations and actions make no sense but I consider that a plus rather than a demerit. Its very Argento on that front. The guy has lost a lot when it comes to staging his set piece scenes however. There's a scene where 2 cops get killed that is completely crazed but would have been so much better staged as a stalking rather than what we get.

    It's the most Argento film since Nonhosonno though and I'm not sorry it exists which I tend to be for new Argento. A tentative recommendation for those with a fond, forgiving eye.

    Ok, so the new vBulletin software doesn't let you merge stuff the way the old software did but I've 'copied' the old thread into this one.

    I don't love the way it looks/reads, but such is life.

    I just noticed that there are two threads for this movie with the same name.... How about merging them, Ian?

    That's a good sign for an English-friendly disc coming soon.

    If you are so inclined, Shudder stuff shows up VERY quickly on the high seas, and in high quality.
Working...
