Deep Red A.K.A. Profondo Rosso A.K.A. The Hatchet Murders (1975)

An Italian thriller directed by Dario Argento.
A pianist investigates the murder of a psychic woman who lives in the same apartment building.
I hate Dario Argento's work. The video is always underexposed and the audio is always uneven. The unevenness of the audio comes from whispered dialogue and music that is too loud. Whisper-blast audio so to speak. The plots in his films are usually very similar as well as having similar settings. The similar cast of characters always includes a detective or someone acting as one. He also always gets all artsy-fartsy with camera angles and framing. I think he would have been a better photographer than film director. One-trick pony, Dario delivered EXACTLY what I expected in this film. I rate it bad.
