The Stendhal Syndrome
Directed by Dario Argento
A detective suffers strange hallucinations while hunting a serial killer in Dario Argento’s bone-chilling ‘90s masterpiece. Anna (Asia Argento) is on the trail of a psycho when she experiences Stendhal syndrome, a condition that causes people to become overwhelmed by works of art to the point of psychosis. But when the killer kidnaps and rapes her, it begins a process that threatens all who cross Anna’s path. Using CGI to bring Anna’s artistic hallucinations to life, Argento crafts a brutal yet visually stunning thriller that stands on par with his classics. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

something of a surreal suspense movie. Wasn't a fan of the protagonist but the aryan psychopath rapist made up for the lead actress' lack of authenticity. I wouldn't watch it again but the style of the film entices me to watch more of Argento's older work
Well that was depressing, definitely not a “feel good movie”. It’s very dark, disturbing, and nightmarish. This movie will make you sick to your stomach. I do recommend this but I don’t as well. I definitely don’t ever want to watch this again
Sorry it’s supposed to say, I love Argento.
Not Argento's best, and way to long, Asia is really good in this though.
