Berberian Sound Studio
One of my favourite films from last year stands up remarkably well to repeat viewing at home. This fetishised exploration of Italian giallo filmmaking, analogue sound recording and foley effects, as seen through the eyes of Toby Jones’ timid sound engineer is a gorgeous nightmare vision. Plot takes a back seat in favour of an increasingly claustrophobic and disorientating atmosphere, as writer-director Peter Strickland dives head first into the world of The Equestrian Vortex.
