Blindspotting (Carlos López Estrada)
Blindspotting is a mess that is likely to lessen in your mind as soon as it’s over, even if you may be utterly absorbed in it in the moment (which I often was). A lot of it is provocation which belies a lack of a real message, or story turns that feel unearned even in the heightened context the movie establishes. But there is undeniable craft here, and an impossible-to-ignore signal that everyone involved in the project deserves attention going forward. What does work is strong, sometimes powerful. – Dan S.

He’s already teased a sequel in the post-credits scene for the movie, but now he’s got an idea for a prequel film that will explore the head witch Markos. She is the evil demented witch that is looking for a human vessel to live through.
While talking to The Playlist, Guadagnino shared his prequel concept saying:
“I have this image in my mind. I have this image in my mind of Helena Markos in solitude in the year 1212 in Scotland or in Spain. Wondering through a village and trying to find a way on how she can manipulate the women of the village. I have this image. I know she was there,

During a recent press day, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with several of the key players from the new Suspiria. Earlier this week, we featured interviews with Guadagnino, Johnson, and Swinton, and for our final video interview, we have Goth on tap to talk all things Suspiria (2018). Goth is someone who impressed me greatly in last year’s A Cure for Wellness, but her performance in this new iteration of Suspiria as Sara is absolutely transcendent, and
Director Taymor revealed the attachment yesterday afternoon during a buzzed-about Afm buyer presentation for the movie, which Steinem herself video-called in for from New York. Many of the key indie and studio buyers were in the room and I hear offers are already being made from major markets.
Oscar-winner Julianne Moore will play feminist icon Steinem with fellow-Oscar winner Alicia Vikander in talks to play the activist between the ages of 20-40. The movie, based on Steinem’s memoir, will follow her journey to become a crusader for equal rights and her groundbreaking work as a journalist and campaigner. The Ms. magazine founder’s story has added resonance in this Time’s Up and #MeToo era. The production is in discussions with a host of Hollywood A-Listers to join the project.
Luca Guadagnino is earning heaps of praise for his “Suspiria” remake, an ambitious reinvention of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic. Set at a highly competitive girls’ dance school in Cold War Berlin, the film touches on themes of inherited trauma, hysterical women, and Germany’s postwar shame — all bathed in blood and witchcraft. An unlikely candidate to pass the infamous Bechdel test, which measures gender parity onscreen, “Suspiria” actually features only two male actors, each with a single line apiece.. It’s a slam dunk for women onscreen, though it does put them through a meat-hook-shaped ringer.
Chloë Grace Moretz plays Patricia in the film, a dancer who goes missing from the school and provides the first mention of witchcraft in the movie’s opening scene. At an event during the Provincetown Film Festival in June, Moretz had many nice things to say about Guadagnino. Though she was tight-lipped on details at the time,

A snapshot of the couple found at an abandoned hide-out, with pistol-toting Bonnie smoking a cigar, was subsequently distributed to the press, positioning the unmarried outlaws on the national media scene, launching their brief careers as 'fun-loving' criminal superstars.
Without Bonnie, the media outside Texas might have dismissed Clyde as a gun-toting punk...
...but a steady stream of photographs kept the media and the Depression-era public wanting more.
