Il mostro dell' opera - Zoom to the Black??
I really enjoy the cinema of Renato Polselli, and finally got to watch a subtitled-if not a touch battered-version of Il mostro dell' opera.
This movie is amazing. It is as strange, barbaric, twisted and sex drenched (given the limits of the time) as any of his other films that I've encountered.
But you know me a bit dear reader, and you know I'm always looking for the little stuff. So, check out this "fade to black on a woman's crotch" that may not feature EuroBoosh like the Maestro Franco would do, but is this a scoop on the technique? Enquiring TRASH FANS want to know!
Crotch To Black-1964 style!
I don't recall this masterful technique in pre-64 Franco! That said, Franco really created the genre of Zoomin in the Labios Rojos for sure-but I must admit to being stunned by Il mostro....
