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.

Not the best Argento. Although some interesting moments.
Not his best, or anywhere near it. Of interest to those like me who've seen all of his films but at some point you start to wonder why you ever thought he was any good, at all- at which point you have to go back to Tenebrae or Deep Red or Four Flies to remind yourself. He should have given up after Tenebrae.
NOT A MASTERPIECE!!!! But not terrible either
Really good movie in my opinion. Interesting story that hasn't been seen before, at least not by me, with solid performances.
I was bored in the first 10 mins and didn’t bother watching the rest
