Dr. Dario Argento
1970, Italy, 98 min

In 1970, Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspiria) indelibly redefined the “giallo” genre of murder-mystery thrillers with The Bird with the Crystal Plumage—a mind-bending mix of murder, obsession, and art. A staggeringly assured first feature, this film establishes the key traits that define Argento’s filmography, including lavish visuals and a flair for wildly inventive and brutal scenes of violence. With sumptuous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now) and a seductive Ennio Morricone score, this landmark film has never looked better in this 4K restoration.

“Its scares are on a much more basic level than, say, a thriller by Hitchcock. It works by exploiting our fear of the dark.” – Roger Ebert
