Interrabang (1969)

4.0 out of 5

Interrabang, part question and part exclamation, is a sadly much overlooked giallo style thriller that has a similar feel to the much later Waves of Lust or even, to a lesser extent, Five Dolls For an August Moon.

Oozing, for the most part, a golden age Euro cinema vibe with an appeal to jet-setting fantasies of a life of leisure aboard yachts and models in fashion shoots the first half of the film is as cheesy, twee and swanky as a vintage lounge-scored vermouth commercial before going into overdrive in the twist and turn department.

This is a captivating thriller and the unforgettable score is from Berto Pisano and pretty much the same as the one used in Giallo in Venice.
