The Visconti of Violence goes straight for the throat (and eyes) in this stylishly sick thriller about a young diva - the setting is a production of Macbeth at La Scala opera house - terrorised by a psycho killer. All the trademarks are here: minimal plot, striking set pieces, baroque camera movements, misogynist violence. As always, though, the most horrific thing is the dubbing. See it, if you must, on the big screen, because its swirling camerawork and imaginative nastiness will be completely lost on video.
