              call me a midwit but in my opinion it was an unspoken rule in the movie that any "magic" or power that happened only happened when the devil does so willingly. corso gets to solve the riddle because the devil lets him/makes him solve it. If she didn't want him to solve it nothing would have happened even with the correct pages and doing everything to a tee

      I agreed with you the first time I watched it but I think the movie does establish he's obsessive about knowledge but also ruthlessly ambitious. He just doesn't seem conventionally ambitious like Balkan (very proper, giga wealthy business man).

        i think Balkan gets cucked by the devil because he didn't have the interest and drive to investigate it himself, and rather tried to hire somebody and let money do the work

        in the book it's a bit different, it's a horny boomer book and the demon girl just likes Corso, i think he doesn't even open the gates at the end, he just fricks the demon

        not really the same tone as this, as the Ninth Gate has a bit of a wacky mocking tone while keeping the mysterious atmosphere, but movies with similar themes: devil's advocate, angel's heart, the order (2003), some hellraiser movies, or try some other Polanski, even if they are not the same, like Repulsion, not so big fan of Rosemary's Baby but i guess it fits too

        there's several theories.

        1. he was the devil all along and forgot that he was the devil (that's mainly a Cinemaphile theory as I've seen it)
        2. he replaced the devil as the devil (who was sick of being the devil) the adventure was to find someone who was worthy.
        3. he gets his wishes granted by the devil for 30 years at which point he gets dragged into hell where he has to curse god for all eternity thus negating any chance at redemption
        4. he stands at the right hand of the devil or becomes the antichrist.

          Don't know this business about being ghosts, but they were certainly angels, guarding and hindering. They're the ones that took it upon themselves to alter the copies of the 9Gates to make it difficult for anyone from ever solving the riddle.
          Look at the engravings: one of the ash brothers is the representative of Diving Retribution in the archer pointing at the bridge and anyone that would cross it. Corso is warned by the falling scaffolding etc., but perseveres regardless.

          140. TOLEDO: CENIZA BROS. WORKSHOP INT/DAY

          CORSO pauses in the doorway and surveys the interior. The hand
          press has disappeared and the floor is littered with debris. Pale
          rectangular patches on the grey walls indicate where counters and
          cabinets have been ripped out.

          TWO SPANISH WORKMEN are busy detaching an old cabinet from the
          wall with an electric screwdriver.

          CORSO: Oiga!

          He has to repeat himself before they interrupt their activities.

          1ST WORKMAN: Seftor?

          CORSO: Los Hermanos Ceniza?

          1ST WORKMAN: Los Ceniza? (glances at the 2ND WORKMAN): Est&n
          muertos.

          CORSO: Como muertos? Quando?

          1ST WORKMAN: Oh, hace anos, anos.

          CORSO: ANOS?!

          The 2ND WORKMAN comes over, wiping his hands on his apron.

          2ND WORKMAN: Ingles?

          CORSO: Americana.

          2ND WORKMAN (as if that explained everything): Ah... They dead,
          many years.

          CORSO (more and more puzzled): But they were here not long ago -
          I spoke with them.

          The 2ND WORKMAN looks at his colleague, shrugs and chuckles as if
          to convey that Corso is crazy, like most foreigners.

          1ST WORKMAN: Disculpe.

      I had a chance to go to Spain for business nearly 10yrs ago and took the chance to visit Toledo because of this film.
      It was in August I think, so like in most of Europe everything was closed and mostly empty and so it was hot and spooky just like how the Toledo section of the film has Corso basically the only person wandering the streets.
      Maybe it's like that all the time, dunno.

      Questions on the effayness of the coat in question aside style wise, coats should be scaled in terms of length:
      The shorter you are, the shorter the coat should be and the taller you are the more leeway there is for wearing something ankle length. Manlets should avoid at all costs coats that go below the knees because it cuts the amount of length shown below and gives the illusion that you have really short legs making you look even shorter.
      At best you should look for a coat that ends mid-thigh, or if it's a trench/rain coat then above the knees but no more.
      Tallgays should avoid the really short coats because it'll make you look all leg and daddylonglegs like and disproportionately lanky but they can get away with the old style trench/overcoats/greatcoats that actually offer splash protection from above the shoes and up. Get a shorter coat.

      Depp had a professionally tailored coat. You're buying off the rack. so you'll probably have to have the sleeves hemmed. They're also cut so that you can wear them over a suit coat which can make an overcoat look a bit baggy when worn over more casual dress. I have one with padded shoulders that I like because it retains the same shape regardless of what i'm wearing underneath.

            It's actually standard procedure for old books and documents to be handled with bare hands. As long as your hands are clean, they will transmit little in the way of contaminants that would damage the material, and by wearing gloves you have impeded sensory feedback when holding pages which risks damaging them by pushing or pulling too hard.

      Remember that the 9 Gates is a human interpretation of the Delomelonicon or whatever the frick it was called, which was directly penned by Lucifer himself and that the engravings in Tochia's work were also versions he did taking inspiration from the original source work, which could be as hellish, literally, as you could imagine. Or it could be so weird and beyond human understanding hence why it's mentioned that Torchia wrote the 9Gates/Doors "with help from the master" to make it make sense to the mortal mind.
