Suspiria (Luca Guadagnino, 2018)

 ☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼(☼) out of 10☼

Set against the politically charged backdrop which echoes with the WWII evils, Luca Guadagnino’s daring, hypnotizing and extremely polarizing reimagination of Dario Argento's Suspiria appears like a deviant, coolly dispassionate step-daughter of the original film and plays out like a twisted ode to motherhood whose forte lays in well-rounded performances by the entire cast, especially by the mysteriously beautiful Dakota Johnson and always reliable Tilda Swinton (in a triple role), as well as in the sinister, ostensibly composed atmosphere punctuated by the carefully timed moments of macabre delights, and established via the breathy, melancholic score by the Radiohead singer Tom Yorke and the wintry, austerely beautiful cinematography by Sayombhu Mukdeeprom whose camera frequently dances along the bewitched ballerinas.

  1. svaka cast juce sam morao da branil suspiriju od 200+ toliko otrovnih komentara na prominentnoj grupi medijskih teoreticara, cije napade uopste ne razumem

    1. Hvala!

      Naišao sam i ja na negativne reakcije, otud i ono 'extremely polarizing'.

      A moram da priznam da sam pre gledanja očekivao da budem razočaran, pošto mi je Arđentov film veoma drag, ali se, eto, desilo upravo suprotno.

  2. dve su prituzbe bile posebno interesantne

    jedna je da on implicite povlaci paralelu izmedju nacisticke nemacke I levicarskog ekstremizma / kao da je to nesto… nekorektno?/

    a druga da je ples 'drvendekast' I 'dosadan'

    nijedna ni druga primediba uopste ne kapiraju da je svo to pakovanje deo reziserove totalno ESTETSKe metodologije - svi ti politickopravnoformalni elementi namerno su po meni ispraznjeni od znacenja jer je poenta u estetskim I energetskim silama koje se oslobadjaju na vesticijem sabatu, i takodje, o inkarnaciji tih energija, kroz telo, sto sve strasno lici na makavejeva wr misterija orgazma
