Creating a storm of attention and awards last year with Call Me By Your Name, director Luca Guadagnino this time takes on a giallo cult classic, Dario Argento’s 1976 Suspiria. Premiering at venice Film Festival, the premise is more or less the same with the original: A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up. With its brilliant cast, its source material, indomitable sense of unease and unparalleled visual setup, Guadagnino’s take on Suspiria features music by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Damien Jalet’s choreographies.
