This is one of my favorite Dario Argento films, and is arguably his weirdest. The movie also features some of his most memorable set pieces, so buckle up if you’ve never seen it before. The key to truly appreciating Inferno is to keep in mind that it’s intentionally constructed using dream / nightmare logic. I saw a film screening of this once and someone near me kept making self-righteous noises any time something illogical happened. That jerk missed out on a really special experience. This movie has a few flaws, but you’ll forgive them in the end… unless you’re a jerk.
