Watching: Inferno

inferno_1980_lobbycard_german_02I turned on Inferno just to watch something comfortable and familiar as I am wrapping up my evening.  Argento toned down the Bavaesque lighting for this movie and it feels less like an attack on the senses than Susperia did.  In general I think it works.

The above scene is my favorite and the image is from a German lobby card. At this point in his career Argento was a master of creating and sustaining tension and the underwater scene displays this best.  I have no idea what happened to the man, I mourn his loss.
