Suspiria ★★½

Democratic witches, sympathetic Nazis and Dakota Johnson giving a halfway believable performance. WTF. I can appreciate that something this goddamn weird even exists, as it's the kind of pointlessly extravagant, self-indulgent production that can only get made by someone fresh off directing a critical darling and drunk on the potentialities of the medium. Outstanding sound design and use of oldschool film lenses on cutting-edge digital cameras. Yet I have to wonder whether Amazon Studios is trying to lose money on purpose by financing bizarre auteurist projects like WEINER DOG, THE NEON DEMON and this.
