As for Argento's decline and fall, despite what a lot of folks say, I didn't mind The Card Player, which is more of a police thriller than a giallo. I don't think Giallo is as bad as folks say that it is either, though the stunt casting of Adrian Brody is ridiculous. It looks great, however. Mother of Tears is dreadful. I think that it's Argento's worst film simply because for all the style, it's so darned stupid. And I know people will fight me about this, but Argento's Dracula, while not good, does have some decent scenes and isn't quite as terrible as Mother of Tears. I want to believe that guys like DePalma, Carpenter, and Argento have at least one good film each left in them, but I'm not really sure.

Re-watched Body Double again recently and it still holds up pretty well for me. Though some of the scenes and dialog are pretty cheesy, the whole vibe of the film is still thrilling enough to keep me engaged until the end. And yes, I agree that the ending was a bit dull and predictable. But it is what it is. The rest of the movie (especially the Frankie Goes To Hollywood video bit) is still very well done. Still recommend a viewing if you've never seen.
