Just watched this one last night, the longer 2h+ cut which has Italian dubs for some of the parts that weren't in the export version.

Really enjoyed it, plenty of mystery, red herrings and suspects... And visually, it's a feast, giving the movie a very surreal feeling, both in the cinematography as well as the locations incl a Hopper-esque bar at the square where Hemmings lives/the first murder takes place, and a gorgeous house with art nouveau ornaments and windows.

After the first murder scene, and David Hemmings mentioned the 'missing painting', I went back to that scene, knew the 'painting' he was referring to, and still did not make the connection when he meets the killer later on, hahaha... Really cool tho to see that Argento didn't cheat with that mirror scene (it reminded me of the way the killer's identity is revealed early on in 1947's 'The Unsuspected'). Also cool how every painting in that hallway depicts tortured faces of some sort.

I could have done without some of Goblin's over-the-top score, it killed the mood too often. Some of the humor between Hemmings and journalist Daria Nicolodi also felt a bit forced to me.

Overall tho, an easy 8/10. Looking forward to watching it again, to see if I can pick up clues and such...
