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. Tony Musante... read more

my 2020 movie diary ♥ (39 movies items)

" Dario Argento is a very hit-or-miss director, and this was a fucking miss. As I had bitched in section# 1 of this diary, giallo can be a very grating genre. In this film, you have to sit through a lot of badly written police procedural dialogue, dry tableaus of Tony Musante acting like a moron, and plot twists that they shouldn't even have bothered with. You see elements of greatness, for example the murder scenes are extremely well shot and look very glamorous. Argento was just settling in"

"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."
