Maitland McDonagh: Broken Mirrors / Broken Minds The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento
Essential ... will surely become the cornerstone of all
subsequent Argento studies.
Long overdue, it will remain the definitive text on
Argentos films and excesses for quite some time.
A reason to celebrate for serious horror fans.
A remarkable and exciting work.
McDonagh is a damn fine writer ... one of the best books
about horror movies Ive ever read.
An enlightening book.... We strongly recommend it.
Simply stated: If youre an Argento fan, buy this
This enticingly titled book (taken from a line from
SUSPIRIA) is an absolute must for any Argentophile. One comes
away from it with a new sense of and respect for Dario Argento as
an auteur who is both a dedicated craftsman and an
inspiration for other filmmakers and filmgoers alike. This book
is heartily recommended. Brava Maitland!
