An homage to the classic Italian giallos of the period, Peter Strickland's (In Fabric) masterful pastiche Berberian Sound Studio is another triumph.
Set in 1976, Toby Jones plays a documentary sound engineer who finds himself employed by a notorious low-budget Italian horror studio. Uneasy in his new environment and surrounded by a world he finds alien, he throws himself into his work, failing to notice how life is slowly beginning to imitate art.
