Macchie solari (Autopsy)
The opening minutes of Armando Crispino's Macchie solari are outstanding. Unfortunately the rest of the film can't quite match the intensity of the montage of suicides and the scenes with Mimsy Farmer in the morgue. It's still an atmospheric and enjoyable (if slightly overlong) giallo with fine performances by Mimsy and Ray Lovelock. There are a few great set-pieces (including a very disturbing sequence at a crime museum). The creepy, atonal score by Morricone fits prefectly and is a deserving candidate for the Digitmovies treatment. No info on the poster artist.
