someone seemingly being driven mad
12 March 2013 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Not, perhaps, strictly a giallo, this has enough of the ingredients, including someone seemingly being driven mad. Not a women, this time, either or should I say Carroll Baker, but a guy. And who is the most unlikely male star to be going around with fairly short hair and a hat struggling to be the good guy? Klaus Kinski is the man and what a performance against type, even in my dubbed version he is very convincing and helps drive this mystery along. The London scenes help, particularly with a lengthy psychedelic sequence with hippies, motorbikes and topless chicks. I had an idea all was not as it seemed about halfway through but was still happy to see this largely luxury mansion set unfold. Not directed with particularly style but the scenes are well enough arranged and there are enough good shots and moments to make this well worth watching. There is a very closely shot beating of Kinski that is most vivid.
