Knife + Heart

Twitter Capsule: What if giallo just isn't that interesting? What if you can be "stylized" without much style? Paradis is pretty bad.

VOR:   I'm sure some will discern value or wit to the movie's pastiche and its odd angles on queerness and gender but I found it all cheap and disposable.
