Bummmer! I was really looking forward to Berberian Sound Studio, but word out of TIFF has not been kind. The Peter Strickland directed, Toby Jones starring film looked like a stylish homage to 70’s giallo films. Apparently I was wrong. At least that’s what Brad (Mr. Disgusting) is telling me.
“Boy, was I excited to see this film. I’d heard great things. I love the world – the concept of a sound designer working with an iconic Italian horror director during the 1970s, a time when all Italian genre films were shot without sound and designed with different spoken languages during post-production, is brilliant. Great cast. Obviously quality production values. So know that if I say I hated this movie, I went into it with more than an open mind. And I HATED this movie..”
