The Bird With The Crystal Plumage

3

A writer is stalked by a killer after witnessing a murder in a Roman art gallery

An American writer is stalked by a killer after witnessing a murder in a Roman art gallery... Critic/screenwriter Dario Argento only directed Bird to stop anyone else ruining his “magnificent piece of writing”. The result – a smart, cosmopolitan, thoroughly modern whodunit comprised of geometric visuals and pulsating sexual violence – launched Argento’s vivid career (Deep Red, Suspiria, Inferno) and took the Italian giallo international as spaghetti westerns died out. Three superficial docs track its influence.
