Great Visuals, Wonderful Set Design, Poor Movie
Dario Argento's Suspiria is a movie that definetely attracts the viewer by its beautiful display of colors and camera work. The shot in which we see a castle reflected on the water, giving the illusion of a real building is really ingenious. We also see amazing design in the interiors with a lot of geometrical compositions, that gives you the impression that this film has been made by someone sensitive to visual art. The use of blue and red are well chosen in order to create a visual feast for the spectator. However, the movie is not an exact demonstration of what smart, creative storytelling can be. It is a poor movie that after being watched, leaves the sensation of wasted time. Dialogue is completely void and doesn't build any of the characters. There is no depth to it and even as an entertaining horror movie fails for its lack of content and meaning. Dario Argento can be a genious in filmmaking but he fails mostly to create plots that are complex and characters that are 3 dimensional. I really had hopes for this film , since I had heard really good comments about it, and it was my first Argento film that I could rent for free at the public library. I wish this film would have been better; it could have been a masterpiece...
