      Alison Foreman indieWire A tightly constructed character study that will initiate unfamiliar viewers with a thorough and thought-provoking primer, while simultaneously giving lifelong fans a better understanding of their sometimes-fetishistic fondness for the filmmaker. Rated: A Feb 5, 2024 Full Review Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com “Dario Argento Panico” surpasses expectations as a retrospective docu-appraisal given Scafidi’s uncommon investment in his subjects. Rated: 3/4 Feb 2, 2024 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Part career profile and part psychological exploration, “Panico” smoothly accomplishes the first but teases gold with the second. Feb 1, 2024 Full Review Kevin Wight The Wee Review If there is an acknowledgement of a dimming of the light here, this is a fine contextualisation of how brightly he burned within the genre Rated: 3 Feb 28, 2024 Full Review Andy Klein FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) You get great commentary from his daughter, Asia, and even better from some filmmakers -- particularly Guillermo Del Toro, who is so insightful that he could be one of the best film critics in the world. Feb 13, 2024 Full Review Christopher Campbell Nonfics The documentary is at its best when it showcases Dario Argento himself, joining him at a hotel where he’s writing his latest script and allowing him to speak of his experiences and films firsthand.
