Suspiria

Suspiria ★★★★½

Luca Guadagnino's take on Suspiria is completely different in approach to that of what Dario Argento did in his version. Although for me Argento's vision seemed more consistent and made with thorough clarity, I found this version to be a bit muddled up as Guadagnino tried to focus on many different topics. This is just a small mistake that Guadagnino does, otherwise this version is absolutely on par with that of Argento's. And in some parts even better. The demented scale of production and the bleak, postwar, winter world that Guadagnino has created is daunting. Dakota Johnson's character goes through a rapid shift as we her pale skin emitting some kind of a powerful aura as the film enters into the climax. The through research about the Three Mothers, and their demented portrayal is another highlight in this gorgeous film.

Lastly, Thom Yorke as the cherry on top.
