Saw Mario Bava’s #KillBabyKill. Plot, w’ its various withholdings & disclosures, is pretty good. Visuals that render it are out of this world …

… Pools of light in shadow, and & in the most careful colour. Magisterial composition/camera movement. Who else ever made films like this?…

… Powell & Pressburger? Welles in Europe? Luchino Visconti (but w’ 12 times the budget)? No, the answer might be simpler: Mario Bava!
