What makes The Card Player so bad ? As I said above is it generally a bad film are just compared to his other films.

I have to admit i've only seen it once and found it hard going. All i remember is detectives sat in a room staring at computer screens for an hour and a half.

I've given it 3 chances now, and I still can't take to it, even the usually reliable Claudio Simonetti let me down with his awful score!

I do prefer it to The Card Player though

Some of it is so frighteningly inept it seems as if it's been made by an amateur film maker for a budget of 20p and a packet of crisps.

Not The Card Player, no. Although i'm happy to have it for completion reasons.

It also depends what flavour crisps.

Looks like I have to save the film once more! I have to admit I find Card Player to be Argento's last enjoyable film and the best thing he did since Opera. It his take on the dutch or scandenavian dark thriller and though not a patch on his early 60's to late 80's works, it's competantly made and has some great kill scenes (and others not so). It's a fun little film, quite out of Argento's comfort zone but he delt with it well. Yes, I prefer it to Sleepless, Trauma, and Stendhal Syndrome. And it's miles better than Giallo and Dracula.
