Me too. Keith's thoughts on the film at Giallo Fever the other day really piqued my interest.

I watched this tonight and really enjoyed it.

Gilderoy is a sound engineer who leaves England to do a sound job on a film in Italy. It turns out to be a bit too intense for the timid mild mannered Gilderoy and you gradually see him psychologically change.

The opening credits (of the film they are working on) is fantastic, with a Morricone/Nicolai style soundtrack.

It's not really a horror but I couldn't think of a better section to put it in.

It could have been brilliant but it falls apart spectacularly in the third act. Saying that I do want to give it a re watch

I'm waiting for my copy of the BD to arrive, since the film didn't play in any cinema here.
It's one of those rare occasions where a film has caught my eye as soon as I found out about it a few months ago, and I'm really looking forward to watch it.

I'd agree with that. I'm looking forward to watching it again too, although I do wonder how the sound is going to hold up watching it at home. It sounded amazing in the cinema.

I really want to see this movie, but as far as I know a DVD release hasn't even been announced in the States yet.

I was very interested in this film but missed it in a film festival but I'm planning to see it as soon as possible. It's nice to hear it receiving good feedback. The premise for this film seems very good.

Probably the best thing I saw in the cinema all year. I can see why people have issues with it, but it's pretty unique.

The excellent Broadcast soundtrack has been released last week I believe http://www.normanrecords.com/records/137368-broadcast---berberian-sound


The film itself has given me a new sort of admiration for salad.

I thought the first hour was great. The last half hour was meh.


Not that anyone gives a toss what I think.

I really like the film as a whole, I liked where it went at the end but I think the set up led you to think it would go somewhere else.

That's the film in a nutshell. I came out trying to defend it "well this was good, that was nice" but I just gave up. Soundtrack was incredible, definite buy

Finally saw this last night via Netflix UK and I'm in the all fell apart at the end category. I just felt that the first hour or so came off as more of a red herring than a build up to a psychological collapse as it really feels like a whole other story is developing rather than focusing enough on Gilderoy's mental state throughout. He just seems still too much like a disenchanted observer for most of it than it actually getting to him.
