Suspiria ★★★★½

This isn't vanity! This is art!

- me during the entire runtime of Suspiria.

Suspiria is a beautiful dark spell that is both transfixing and overwhelming. It's really focused and carefully made which I loved. The direction is perfect. I still need a rewatch (with english subtitles) before I can truly understand the screenplay but i got the just of what was happening... the dance scenes are incredible!!! especially the volk dance which is one of the most beautiful scenes - just perfectly choreographed. I love when the film got dark and abstract, like Susie's nightmares as well as the witches' ritual in the sixth act. I would have loved to see more of that. I almost wanted it to go even further, like more could have been done with that climax - which was insane and amazing. This was just a really intense, powerful experience. Suspiria feels timeless, definitely a new favourite.
