This is a definitive work on the subject of auteur Dario Argento and his films. A weighty coffee book lavishly illustrated and wide-ranging in its sources. The author Alan Jones uses his thorough knowledge of Argento and the wider Giallo genre to provide a most illuminating tome. It delivers a warm narrative which holds the reader's attention and to complete the picture Jones draws upon a host of insightful interviews along the time-line of Argento's filmography.

Whilst it is clear Jones is an enthusiastic aficionado of Argento this is not an effort designed to be a wholly plauditory biography, it remains reasoned and objective.
For me it is the passionate narration, contributory interviews, inclusion of a section dedicated to Asia Argento and the mesmerising abundance of B&W/Colour illustrations from film set to film posters which makes this an authoritative book.

The perfect up to date read for those seeking a complete view into the fascinating cinematic world of Dario Argento.

Bought this as a present for my partner and he loves it as he's a big fan of Argento movies. He keeps reading it again and again. :)
