    Dario Argento Books:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Art of Darkness: The Dark Cinema of Dario Argento" by Chris Gallant

    (2001, 320 pages, A4 size, mostly b/w with a few color sections; It's all there: reviews to all his films, filmography, a look at his productions, essays on certain themes like the influence of E. A. Poe and a look at voyeurism, plus an incredible amount of pics, from poster art to lobby cards, from movie stills to behind the scenes shots, absolutely amazing. Reviews and articles are by such genre greats as Kim Newman, Julian Grainger, Stephen Thrower, Roberto Curti and Adrian Luther-Smith. Probably the last word on the master of the macabre, A MUST).

      This isn't so bad, I have most of the movies. The books though I don't have any. The only one I've seen is the "Profondo Argento" one at my local comic book shop.

        Yea, it seems Dario wasn't nearly so prolific as his colleague Lucio. For Argento, I guess it's quality over quantity (at least untill his post-'Opera' period, when the trademark Agento style began to lesson). Still love that back catalogue of Fulci's, though!

        I aim to pick all of these rare babies up, eventually, hopefully (fingers crossed, knocks on wood).

          Yes, I own most of these also (thankfully), but still really need to see sleepless aswell as watch and get my hands on the releases of The Five Days Of Milan aswell as Do You Like Hitchcock? Great work again jarv, this is badass. I'll have to start looking in to some of these books.

            If you don't already own a copy, I can attest to the fact that "Broken Mirrors, Broken Minds: The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento" is simply fantastic, one of the very best film-books, ever. Period.

            "Mondo Argento" by Alan Jones is great too, for all it's glossy awesomness. Good look getting ahold of that one, though. I got it from FantaCo, shortly before they went out of business, not long after it was first published back in 1996. Midnight Media did a very limited run and they all sold out within months of publication. It's quite possible that most of it's contents were included in Jones' "Profondo Argento", which is still available from FAB Press and Amazon, but I'm not entirely sure how much of the original book may have been reproduced, if any of it at all, since I have yet to procure my own personal copy of "Profondo".

              It's a pretty big hardcover book to. Looks like a winner if you can get it. Never flipped through it since it's all wraped in plastic.

                    I'm tempted to double dip on that Opera two-disc. But there are other Argento's I need to pick up probably before that.

                    Are the Special Features in English on that? I was so pissed when I sat down to watch the making of and it was in Italian. I recognized a couple things but not enough to understand or write on it.

                    And god damn Tenebre is so expensive. I could've sworn it was like 20 bucks a couple months ago.

                          Nope. That's why I haven't posted in either of my newest threads in the last several days, I haven't had the time to do so. Dude, why you always gotta be such a buzz kill? Try this shit on N2N, why dontcha?! That would be a very entertaining thread. I'd read that!
