Body Puzzle Blu Ray review

BP2The post normally brings bills, congratulations and sometimes something unexpected. When a package turns up with body parts from a murder, then the recipient Tracy is worried. When more appear and the police announce a serial killer is on the lose, Tracy becomes convinced that there is more to it then sheer coincidence.

Bp3Lamberto Bava made a series of films that went very quickly from sublime to absolutely awful. A Blade in the Dark was a rare exception as it was beautiful and skillful but you could not see the genes of his masterful father. Body Puzzle is a little on the awful side of the range. It has slight glimmers of skill in direction but it feels so empty in the whole.

BP1Let me make my case by saying three names Argento, Lenzi and Deodarto. All three directors were making films in the same period. They added touches to all of their films. Touches such as in Argentos use of visuals. Touches as in Lenzi absurdly funny notes of violence and horror. Touches as in Deodartos skilled commentary and social reflection. I feel that Bava was in the family business but was not very good at it. He started well because he had the advice to do that. Later however he was unable to do that. It shows…

BPBl1The Blu Ray has two things to SHOUT about! If you like it then the films looks amazing compared to the terrible German DVD I saw just two years back. That box was nice but the film looked like a pan and scan dog. The notes from the interviews are grand as well. Bava proving the most interesting but also supporting some of what i said above…
