The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Dario Argento


Published December 08, 2005.The Bird with the Crystal PlumageDirected by: Dario Argento(Paradox/Blue Underground)Dario Argento's film debut is more restrained in its gore and storytelling than later ventures. But it's one of the key thrillers of the '70s. The director's gift for building scares and intrigue is already unmistakable, as is his pet theme of the culpability of artists, this time exploring the connection between a writer and a serial killer to whom he bears witness. This two-disc version finally gives the movie the DVD release it deserves.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
