I wrote about a similar phenomenon in my review of Ravenous, and - much like that film - Suspiria is a movie entirely elevated by often overlooked component parts.
The plot is mostly nonsense, the acting often spoiled by hamfisted dubbing (and not even that notable when it isn’t), and the writing is barely even noticeable. However just for its production design, its lighting, its cinematography, and its use of music, this is a work of sheer genius.
Suspiria is still just about one of the most fascinating, beautiful things put on screen, even decades after its release. A masterpiece of style over substance, and an elevation of the horror genre.
All told, it’s a film even Argentines could never…
