Download E-books Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds: The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento PDF

By Maitland McDonagh

Italian filmmaker Dario Argento’s horror movies were defined as a mix of Alfred Hitchcock and George Romero—psychologically wealthy, colourful, and now and then garish, excelling at taking the simplest parts of the splatter and exploitation genres and laying them over a dismal undercurrent of human feelings and psyches. Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds, which dissects such Argento cult movies as Two Evil Eyes, The poultry with the Crystal Plumage, Suspiria, and Deep Red, incorporates a new advent discussing Argento’s most modern movies, from The Stendahl Syndrome to Mother of Tears; an up to date filmography; and an interview with Argento.
