Dario Argento's Opera could be considered one of the last truly great films in the maestro's canon. It sets itself apart from the rest by showcasing some of the most innovative, breathtaking cinematography I've ever seen in a film. Period. Argento and first-time collaborator Ronnie Taylor really let loose and run wild with the visuals. POV shots abound, including crow-vision and sink drain-vision ... read more

Opera (1987)

3 years, 10 months ago at Mar 2 20:16
In "Opera", all gimmicky and even gruesome of Giallo topics are more than present. In absurd script saves a bit that Dario Argento has a way of making very effective and imaginative in their own way. With its narrative ups and downs, its loose interpretation (aaahhh! my dear Cristina Marsillach...) and its amazing development and resolution, the film can be seen with more pain than glory.

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Dario Argento’s last masterpiece, Opera, to date is one of his supreme essays on the possibilities of the subjective tracking shot for elaborating on the diseased pitfalls of the oft-discussed “male gaze.” Spritely, funny, atmospheric, and formally masterful, this clever fusing of The Phantom of the Opera with the legendarily cursed theatrical history of Macbeth also offers one of the horror film’s greatest metaphors: a collection of pins taped directly under the heroine’s eyes that li"

"First viewing - March 22nd Argento is very hit and miss with me I'm finding, and this was more of a miss. It's not bad at all though...the art of the film was very impressive and made it worth sitting through. From the colors to the camerawork to the set design, there's a lot here to appreciate. And the means the killer uses to keep our protagonist watching what he does...outstanding nightmare fuel. I just didn't care much for the characters though, and found the acting to be lacking at times. "

Film Journal - June 2016 (32 movies items)

"With beautifully crafted visuals and a great operatic (and sometimes heavy metal, because why not) soundtrack, Dario Argento's Opera ends up being my favorite film by the director. It's incredibly brutal, it's mean-spirited, it's sometimes sleazy, and it's very intense all the way through. It's everything you'd want in an Argento film, served with some of the greatest camera work I've seen in a horror film. As a detractor, the last 10 minutes is pretty unnecessary, but I liked the film enough "
