Suspiria Review – Lff 2018

  • HeyUGuys
“Mother Tedium, Mother Laborious, Mother I’ve done gone defiled Suspiria so should sob at the hem of Argento then be sentenced to helm Sharknado sequels in hell (for an hour).” While a joke like that might seem severe, one can imagine writer/ director Luca Guadagnino whimpering it in the minds of horror fans left ditched and indifferent by his discordant adaptation of Dario Argento’s masterpiece. Suspiria (2018) is a total, colossal but cryptic failure (like John Boorman’s Exorcist 2: The Heretic or Neil Labute’s The Wicker Man) and possibly a greater calamity than plastic cash-in remakes: Poltergeist (2015) and Flatliners (2017), considering the talent behind it. Cast members Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, with composer Thom Yorke and Call Me By Your Name cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, lock horns with Guadagnino for a clunky re-hash/ car-crash cacophony that sits insipid and soulless on screen like an inanimate piss

‘Green Book’ wins Audience Award at Middleburg Film Festival, and the Best Picture Oscar could be next
Green Book” won the Audience Award for Best Narrative at the Middleburg Film Festival on Monday, putting it in good standing for Oscar glory.

Even though the showcase, based in suburban Washington, D.C., is only in its sixth year, the winner of this honor has factored into the Oscar race in a major way. The first four years of the festival saw the winner of this prize receive Best Picture nominations: “Philomena” (2013), “The Imitation Game” (2014), “Spotlight” (2015), which won the Oscar, and “Lion” (2016). Last year’s winner, “Mudbound,” missed out in Oscar’s top category but still managed to get four nominations, including Best Supporting Actress (Mary J. Blige) and Best Adapted Screenplay. “Green Book” is currently in sixth place to claim the Best Picture Oscar, according our combined odds.

Suspiria Review: An Eerie Horror Remake

Dario Argento’s cult horror classic gets remade, but does its reimagined coven cast the same spell? Here's our Suspiria review.

At first glance, it seems like Dario Argento’s 1977 cult horror classic, Suspiria, would be impossible to remake. Not because it’s so well-written or satisfying as a narrative, but because Argento’s film is so stylized, so drenched in its own peculiar atmosphere and so specifically tailored to the director’s own particular vision (what there is of it) that any attempt to recreate or refashion what the legendary Italian horror auteur had wrought would fall hopelessly short in the areas where Suspiria is strongest while delivering something more conventional as a film.

But the idea of current hotshot Italian filmmaker, Luca Guadagnino taking on the challenge was an interesting one. Guadagnino’s films, including I Am Love, A Bigger Splash and last year’s acclaimed Call Me by Your Name,

Little Women” reunites both Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet with their “Lady Bird” director Greta Gerwig, and the entire trio seems happy about it. Their upcoming project together — the latest adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel, which has already been made into six different films — already ranks among the most anticipated movies of 2019, with all three are coming off Academy Award nominations.

It’ll be some time before we see anything official from “Little Women,” but Chalamet has taken it upon himself to share a blurry Instagram photo of his co-star and director rehearsing a few weeks ago; accompanied by the caption “littlewomen,” it shows Ronan hugging Gerwig from behind.

Luca Guadagnino to Adapt Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’ into Feature Film

In 2007, visionary director Todd Haynes directed I’m Not There, a trippy, hazily romantic drama about the life of Bob Dylan marked by the unusual device of having six very different actors (including Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale) to portray the musical icon. And now another acclaimed auteur will be taking on Dylan in a unique way: Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me By Your Name and this year’s Suspiria remake, announced he is turning Dylan’s iconic 1975 album Blood on the Tracks into a feature film.

He announced this in a recent New Yorker profile by Nathan Heller, where he also disclosed that Richard Lagravanese will be penning the script. Specific plot details are still under wraps, but it appears that the 1970s-set film will have a fictional narrative with characters devised from Guadagnino and Lagravenese, and will be a “multiyear set story.” The script, which was finished this summer,
