The Bird with the Crystal Plumage is Dario Argento's first film and despite being a very tame giallo, all the elements that make Argento who he is are all here at such an early stage. POV shots and exquisite framing, black leather glove-clad killer, ordinary Joe caught up in a mystery, etc. That being said, the style and violence are toned down considerably compared to his later work.

"26.5. DVD Klisee pitää paikkansa ja tässä on jo selkeästi nähtävissä Argenton tyyli muodostumassa. Hyvin hiomattomana ja viehättävän kökkönä toki. Hyvän näköinen ja oikein viihdyttävä."

" - Rewatched If you want to get into the films of Dario Argento, you're probably better off by watching something besides this. As it is his debut feature as a film director, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE is lacking a bit of that finesse and refined craftsmanship that would come to define Argento as a master of the giallo genre. With that said, this is nonetheless a film that, despite its slow pace, soaks you in with its aesthetics and haunting musical score. The gorgeously framed shots make"

"Seen a long time ago on VHS. First movie of Master Argento and just the brilliant beginning of a fantastic filmography. A model of giallo."

" Date: 10/9/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: Dario Argento's first movie and his most underrated movie in my opinion. While it's not his best movie, I still think it is a very good movie. The Cinematography is amazing because of the great use of colors. Every bit of this movie is just wonderful to look at. This movie feels like a painting at times for how colorful this movie looks. The story is really good too in my opinion because I like all of the characters and how they handle the myst"

Movie Reviews (951-1000) (50 movies items)

" Dario Argento's directorial debut is an effective little crime thriller that has great visual touches. A sick moment is when a painter locks himself inside a house and eat cats. The violence is also refreshingly restrained with gore and feels almost like the next step from Hitchcock if he had decided to go the Italian route with his films. The set piece with the hero trapped between two glass doors is fantastic. "

"October 11 This is a really solid movie, but it is far from perfect. For starters, it is Dario Argento's first movie and it does show at times. The pacing is a little off at times and it does feel slow sometimes. That and I can't say I was really impressed with the twist ending. Even though I wasn't expecting it, I've seen the exact twist done better before and I feel like it was more shocking back then. For all its shortcomings though, it is a simplistic film that is very suspenseful, well-a"
