This is to kind of merge all of the Argento topics and things. To talk about the Man, the Myth, and the Legend. Dario Argento himself. To talk about The films of Argento, news on Argento, trivia on Argento or his films, theories on his films, and other things along that nature. The thread to end all threads. To kick things off, I compiled a list of easy and known trivia. SOME SPOILERS In alot of his films he used Daria Nicioldi, his lover. She stars in Deep Red, Phenomena, Opera, Tenebe, and the story for Suspiria actually came from Daria, who when she was young her Grandmother would tell her stories and Suspiria was one of the stories she told. Daria was set to star as the lead, until Argento said he wanted an American. Deep Red - Daria is A good Character Opera - Daria is a good character that get's killed in one of the worst ways possible. Tenebre - Daria is a good character who get's messed up mentally in the end. Phenomena - Daria is a full out Evil Character. Some say this Symbolizes the decline of their relationship. From Good to Bad. He often uses up-closes of the eyes in his films. When he would shoot the killer with black gloves that would be his own hands. He stopped doing that since Sleepless. His uses of Color in his films are very memorable and very beautiful, it's kind of become a trademark. Suspiria and Inferno is Part of a Triolgy called The Three Mothers. He's currently working on the third part. It's a trilogy with three witches, one in Germany, another in New York, and the last in Rome. Suspira is set in Germany with the Mother of Sighs. Inferno is set in New York with the Mother of Darkness. Last One is going to be set in Rome with the Mother of Tears. In Suspiria and Inferno, Argento uses the same Cab Driver in Both movies intentionally.
