Euro Beat: You Must Watch This Dario Argento Video Essay From The Directors Of AMER

Editor-at-Large; Los Angeles (@
Whether you're new to Italian horror master Dario Argento (Suspiria) or a seasoned fan, this excellent montage/essay put together by Belgian directing team Bruno Forzani and Helene Cattet (Amer, The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears) is essential viewing. Also in today's Euro Beat, Cahiers du Cinema highlights the best French movies of the year (and some others too), an announcement of a very exciting upcoming European production, plus a special Russian box office report!

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.
