Yay! I can't wait. I've never seen it, and I don't care how many people say it sucks, I'm all over this! :D

Good one Skinnypuppy. LOL. I would like Santa to bring me the Dario dvd too, but I am running like hell if he's wearing black gloves. Especially if I start hearing the music of Goblin.

I wish that Asia Argento is under my tree in a santa claus outfit holding the Non Ho Sonno RC1 :D

But i think will be grateful when i only get the dvd at all.

I wish Asia Argento was waiting for me under my xmas tree looking like she did in her phot shoot/inderview she did in the UK magazine Bizarre.

Back to the subject at hand (and I think those Asia pics have made some of you do something else with your hands), I finally saw Nonhosonno this weekend.

First of all, I watched a bootleg VHS of the Italian DVD, and man did they do a bad job on the copy. Sound sucked, and they ran it in 16x9 mode, so everyone was tall and skinny!

But the movie itself is darn good. Dubbing sucked pretty bad. (Why is it that movie technology progresses, but dubbing jobs are getting worse and worse? Am I the only one who's noticing this??). It's definitely a "return-to-form" for Argento, as there's some musical and visual signatures that are classic Argento. I might even go as far as to say the murders are probably his most brutal ever.

I'll reserve final judgement till I see it again (and that won't be until the DVD comes out, 'cause my VHS bootleg is so bad it sullies the name of "bootleg"). All Giallos are that way. After you find the killer's identity, you watch it again to see what drove him/her to murder.

I have no idea why this movie gets put down. It's a LOT better than Phantom and Trauma.

She will be mine. :D.

10-04-2001, 05:54 AM
okay.. i haven't seen the film yet and am eagerly awaiting to R1 release.. many claim it to be much better than Trauma and Phantom which doesn't really elevate the film to any goodness since those two films are below average IMHO...

i really like The Stendhal Syndrome and think its classic Argento with a modern feel to it which is great.. how does Sleepless compare to Stendhal? i'm guessing Sleepless is more a return to form in the way of Cat O' Nine Tails and Deep Red.. am i wrong?

10-05-2001, 02:23 AM
I hope its a good print wich it should be

10-05-2001, 06:19 PM
You're not wrong, Suspiria. Nonhosonno is definitely similar to the older Argento gialli. I've only seen it once, and since my copy is so craptacular, I won't ever be watching it again. (I mean I won't be watching my copy. I'm all over the DVD when it comes out).

Like any Giallo, I know it's gonna take repeated viewings to fully appreciate it. This is one of the things that totally galls me about the "Argento's lost it" crowd. You know, people who are supposedly Argento fans, but throw out the "everything since Opera sucked" line any chance they get...

Every single Argento film needs several viewings to get all the nuances. Films like Deep Red and Suspiria were heavily panned upon initial release (ever wondered why so few Argento films got American release?? Why import an Italian flop?), but as time went on, intelligent people saw what the films were really about. Then they get labled as "classic" or "masterpiece", and horror fan sees them today, totally buying into the hype, and loves them on first viewing. Well, there's been no chance to study Stendhal or Nonhosonno yet, so everyone's stuck with the initial reviews, which are of course, poor.

I'm gonna laugh my ass off in 10 years when The Stendhal Syndrome is widely considered the best horror movies of the 90s.

But hey, this has been going on for years in all genres. The Academy didn't think Citizen Kane was the best movie of 1941, let alone all time.

10-06-2001, 02:51 AM
Poff, I agree with you. I consider Stendhal Syndrome to be one of Argento's best movies since Suspiria/Inferno/Tenebre. I don't understand why it's hated by so many because it's beautifully shot and contains some of the nastiest violence of any Argento movie.

As for Nonhosonno, just having Max von Sydow in it (I'm a huge Bergman fan) makes me want to see it!

10-06-2001, 10:14 PM
I am looking forward to Nonhosonno, except I really don't want another Artisan title in my collection. As for Stendhal Syndrome, I thoroughly enjoyed it and consider it one of his better works, I liked it much more than Phenomena, and Phenomena rocks. MONKEY!!!

BTW: Asia rocks my world.

Yes, what's wrong with Artisan? They did a magnificent job on Darren Aronofsky's Pi and Requiem for a Dream, as well as every other title of theirs that I own.

10-07-2001, 11:49 PM
They snag up some of the better independent films and mainstream foreign releases, what's not to like eh? This a probably viewed as a minor quirk, but what killed Artisan for me was when I view the trailers for most of the films they release. It seems to me that they have no faith in the product that they sell, the example I will use here is The Ninth Gate. The trailers for the Ninth Gate would indicate a fast paced, teenage oriented film instead of the brooding and inventive thriller it really was. I'm sure that such a marketing campaign brought in a good box office, but how many of those who saw the film began putting the film down as a boring piece of shit? Or even walked out of the theatre (I don't care how badly I hate a film, I will not walk out on it, I have only done that twice, and one of them was for Moulin Rouge). Its a minor problem, but one of which makes me second guess their motives. This is the same thing I've been seeing with Lion's Gate as well.

10-08-2001, 02:17 AM
dude you went to see Moulin Rouge????????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????????

10-08-2001, 05:46 PM
Yes, I was duped into thinking I was walking into something with depth, character, and timlessness. All I got was tripe, farce, and humbug. Probably the only movie I can honestly say I hate more than anything else in the world.
