ldh's review

One of the last great Argento film, or at least, the one closing his amazing streak through the 70's and 80's, Opera is a visual feast even if it's not successful overall in all the dimensions that made Argento famous. Visuals are great, art direction is fantastic, but the story feels a bit recycled at that point, and certainly, the performances really take the whole thing down a notch. That's likely the film's greatest weakness. That, and a somewhat schizophrenic soundtrack that doesn't really tie the movie thematically like in other Argento fares.
