REVIEW – The Stendhal Syndrome (1996)
Videovista have my review of Dario Argento’s rather splendidly weird The Stendhal Syndrome.
Oddly enough, despite being a fan of Horror and a fan of world cinema, I had never really encountered the films of Dario Argento before seeing this film. I have seen films inspired by his works and gialli that tried to copy it but I had never actually experienced proper Argento before. Needless to say, I loved it: A psychological thriller about a descent into madness that brilliantly doubles as a scathing critique of Italian attitudes to women. Great stuff.
