The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Argento’s first film as a director — the story of a writer who witnesses a murder, and becomes the killer’s next target — exists somewhere between the arid world of Antonioni’s Blow-up and the excess of Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace, and notwithstanding his later work, stands as one of the greatest giallos (Italian thrillers) ever made.
