Default How do you watch your Giallo movies?

I've been collecting giallo since the early 00s, so over the years I have amassed a healthy collection of giallos.

So after watching them as soon as I got them, I decided one year to watch them in year order. So I start from Bava‘s I Vampiri, which is a German hardbox import, and then from that in year order, before moving on to the 70s.

It's really interesting seeing how the genre progressed, and where particular phases started, thanks to a particular film whether it‘s from Italy, or from Hollywood.

It can also be done with certain directors, such as Argento, where you can start with The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, right up to (if you want) Giallo.

I think it’s a good way to re-enjoy the films, and you might appreciate certain films that you didn’t care for the first time round.

I pick a director, and watch his films chronologically.

but seriously, no order, just what I'm in the mood for.

I watch whatever takes me. I don't do things in order, as a rule, as films aren't necessarily released in the order of a director's filmography. I'm fully able to skip back and forth between a particular director's work or different directors and still develop my understanding and appreciation of film. Fair enough if you're revisiting their works which are already in your collection.

But then I no longer obsessively collect either, I got out of that game years ago. If something in a director's filmography doesn't interest me, I don't buy/keep it.
