I became crazy! even if I know that Polselli is loved for this crazyness, of course.
    He has studied philosophy and his films are veritable dissertations on the nature of evil, starting with L'AMANTE DEL VAMPIRO with its alternate theory on the origins of vampirism. La verita secondo Satana? I got a real pretty good copy in Italian mother tongue, in my opinion one of his best.

    Thx for these interesting notes, I would like to add only that there is an evident fracture from the initial works of 50-60 and the more recent works of 70': the first were much simple, the second much complex..but for me is a complexity that go to the direction of a bit of confusion, naturally Imo. I knew about his studies on philosophy: perhaps this give a reason for his elucubrations of 70'

    I got my copy last december, its length is 1:28:49 (special thanks to A.L.T. of bcult, a real gentleman). Well, I was afraid it existed another longer copy. I think it comes from Camen tape source. The garish colors, sleazy characters, unseemly settings, & fantastic electric soundtrack plunge you headfirst into this chaotic erotic world. Polselli is a director who really tries to be approximating eroticism through film instead of just representing or reproducing it. During some of the more outrageous fantasy sequences it is not clear exactly whose psyche we are traveling through...it is more like a spasmodic and violent series of images that dissolve the barrier between individuals. About La casa dall'amore..., another gem, I have read a very intriguing review of this one on an old ETC issue, and since then wanted to grab it. Is it so good?

    I've got it from a lot of time, but I've never seen it ..of course, for my few free time. Now, intrigued by this topic, I promise to myself to watch it in the next days! . Another movie of Polselli, MANIA, is intriguing my in these days..refreshed in my mind by an old post of our member A.N. that spoken about it.
