Euro Beat: You Must Watch This Dario Argento Video Essay From The Directors Of AMER
Only a lucky few have had a chance yet to experience Bruno Forzani and Helene Cattet's The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears, and, speaking as one of those few, I can assure you that it is a beautiful, full-on visceral and extremely intense sensory assault that, among other things, examines the way imagery from giallo and horror films of the 70's are re-contextualized by our subconscious. So who better to cut together a video essay on Dario Argento? No one, that's who.
And so, I implore you to watch this four-minute video the duo cut for the French channel Arte, which lays bare Argento's tropes and obssessions with elegant clarity. Water, eyes, gloves, knives, screams; It's all here! You're welcome.
