Suspiria

Suspiria ★★½

Performances are flat and uninspired and the direction is messy and unfocused in an attempt to come cross as bold and provocative. The Josef subplot and Epilogue are a complete waste, and, to be quite honest, even if you take both of them out of the movie, the rest still feels poorly-executed and unworthy of the climax it tries to pull off. This is the kind of film that tries to trick you into thinking it’s a sophisticated artistic vision instead of actually developing into something worthy of such a title. It’s a shame that I felt like I was watching a parody of what the movie wanted to be. Incredibly disappointing.
