A quasi-genre film that gained a lot of steam out of Toronto before slamming down to Earth at Fantastic Fest Peter is Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio, starring Toby Jones and Tonia Sotiropoulou. I saw the movie. I hated it.
Acquired out of the fests by IFC Films, the pic is “Set in 1976: Gilderoy is hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by Italian horror maestro, Santini. As time and realities shift, Gilderoy is lost in a spiral of sonic and personal mayhem, and has to confront his own demons in order to stay afloat.”
This morning the giallo-esque opening title sequence was discovered and thus posted right here.
