EYES OF CRYSTAL (2004) Best Thriller of the Decade
EYES OF CRYSTAL (2004) Best Thriller of the Decade

"Watch out Dario Argento, director Eros Puglielli is after your crown!"
                                                                                                            --Alan Jones, Prondo Argento


director: Eros Puglielli
starring: Luigi Lo Cascio Lucía Jimenez José Ángel Egido Simon Andreu Eusebio Poncela


The film opens as a young lovemaking couple and a peeping tom are brutally killed on the dunes. Inspector Amaldi is horrified to find that the murderer has amputated the female victim, replacing the severed limbs with wooden arms. Searching for additional clues, the detective finds a clearing in the woods where the killer had captured animals. This convinces Amaldi that the murderer could have a strong interest in dissecting and - perhaps - taxidermy. Although the clues initially take the Inspector and partner Freese down a blind alley, a series of occurrences remind Amaldi of some buried memories. Everything is interrupted when a pretty college student named Giuditta goes to the precinct and asks Amaldi for help because she's being stalked. Everything begins to mesh together with the death of another woman and the reality of a serial killer in their midst.

Director Eros Puglielli burst on the Euro scene with this film. Critics have called it 'the finest thriller since Dario Argento's Opera' [DVD Times]. He specializes in a strong neo-Noir atmosphere with swift camera work (by cinematographer Luca Coassin) and a memorable Giallo-influenced musical score by Francesc Gener [who also co-wrote the script].
