Trauma had some good moments,hell even Phantom Of The Opera had some..:eek1:
Base part of your decision on these results:
Favorite Argento Film
No way, PHENOMENA beat out BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and THE STENDHAL SYNDROME - two of his best.
Glad that Phenomena is #3 on the poll, it's deserves it. But Deep Red should be above Suspiria. Then you would have a great top 3 order.
I can't live without early Argento.
Yeah, no matter how I try, the truth is, I can lie without Deep Red and Phenomena. Trauma is just mediocre too. Cat O' Nine Tails has really risen in my respect.
Early Argento is the best....
I find it surprising that so many people hold PHENOMENA in such high regards... While I enjoy the film quite a bit, I think it's easily the least of his pre-TRAUMA films... My top five would include SUSPIRIA in the top spot, followed closely by TENEBRE, DEEP RED, INFERNO, and OPERA.
Me too, the tribe has voted!
Again, the tribe has voted! But I, myself prefer Deep Red over Suspiria too.
I agree, John. I never thought Phenomena was one of the better Argento films. Actually, truth be told, I HATE it!
Anyways, here are a few Argento films I recommend:
Suspiria and Deep Red - Without question, his two best films, with two totally different feels. I'm not sure which one I prefer, since it always changes, but recently I've been liking Deep Red more than Suspiria. Both are five star films, though.
Tenebrae and Two Evil Eyes - My second favorite, although beware, while Argento's segment in Two Evil Eyes is a five-star masterpeice, Romero's sucks; albiet good makeup effects from Tom Savini. Tenebrae is a film I like more and more everytime I see it. I remember hating it when I first saw it on IFC in 2000.
Opera and Bird with the Crystal Plumage - Good films, tied for third place.
I recommend these 6 films, they are his best, imo.
The Argento's that you do not have, but I would highly suggest getting are:
Deep Red: Probably my favorite Argento Giallo, with a excellent soundtrack
Inferno: An outstanding, beautiflly filmed sequel to Suspiria
Tenebrae: Another great Giallo
Opera: Dark, violent, twisted... Highly recommended!
The Bird With The Crystal Pummage: Argento's first Giallo, still good after all these years
