Peter Strickland, UK, 2012, 92 minutes
When I saw Peter Strickland’s strange, Lynch-esque love letter to giallo at TIFF 2012, I was quite taken with it, but expressed some reservations about the ending. I stand by that review but I have to say that watching this film, first at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema in Toronto, then on Blu-ray at home, it has really held up for me, and is a welcome addition to Netflix. Of the various postmodern giallo mashups we’ve seen in the last few years, for me this is still the best.
