Suspiria ★★½


Largely indifferent to this faux-remake and political extrapolation, primarily because it never fully decides what to set its tune to. Luca Guadagnino really, truly, deeply loves Argento's Suspiria, and that's the main problem - his range from splatter horror to aching ruminations of lost love and the lingering threat of nazism results in a crockpot of too many flavors. Luckily, the score and editing holds the experience together as a rambling, possessed spirit conjured up by history and whispers. Idiotic six-act structure aside, this new Suspiria largely moves with the ferocity of a demon, one that also happens to be obsessed with Berlin.
