    I'm going to start a whole new series on Italian films, from Hercules and Ossessione through to Cannibal Ferox and The Garden of Finzi Contini. It will get me back into writing and you will all love it.

    That's been scheduled since 2014. An essay about 'Lost Illusions' that would also be an essay about the decay of writing, literature, books, criticism, magazines, etc. called 'The Writing Racket'

    I need to get into writing again before I do that.

    Small steps.

    RIP Stelvio Cipriani, one of the great Italian soundtrack composers. This from the wonderful giallo Death Walks on High Heels.

    It's what the people are waiting for.

    Why?

    1. His taste is impeccable, but also idiosyncratic, especially on this forum, and I'm genuinely curious as to what would qualify.
    2. He always writes good stuff to accompany his COTD selections.

    How?

    I would suggest a maximum one selection per day, with accompanying mini (or not) essay.

    One choon per artist, so it isn't just 50 killah priest b-sides.

    My usual is more old Hollywood, Noir and Art House. Impressive thread anyway. I've seen a few.

    A couple with Morricone scores I've just seen.

    What Have You Done To Solange? - Has what a giallo should have. Murder mystery. Sex cults. Plot twists.
    The Cat o Nine Tails - Early Argento. Maybe a little tame but sleek and suspenseful. Epic car chase. Heavy on the whodunnit.

    You're most likely to have seen them already though.
