Apart from "Lutz Ebersdorf", the two detectives and a small handful of minor roles, many without speaking roles, the entire cast of Suspiria (2018) is female. Given his comments that this interpretation's visual style is inspired by the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, this could be seen as director Luca Guadagnino's tribute to Fassbinder's The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972), which was comprised of an entirely female ensemble. Also indicative of this Fassbinder tribute is the casting of Ingrid Caven as housemother Miss Vendegast. In the early 1970s, Caven was married to Fassbinder and appeared in many of his movies.

Every scene in Suspiria is like a Instagram post rather than a movie. The beauty try to compensate for the lack of substance. We find master strokes from Guadagnino and a nano-thin plot that is an excuse to throw sumptuous visuals at the viewer. Argento was right. Remaking Suspiria was a bad idea to begin with. The movie by Dario Argento was maybe a child of its own times. It's very delicate; almost childish. It' just doesn't translate to modern cinema and the attempt came out as very bland, boring and without a soul. Simply try to recreate what worked in the past is not a safe way to success. We would do best to remember that.
