    well Claire Denis just snapped.

    The performances were pretty good across the board, especially Pattinson and Binoche.

    The writing definitely felt quite similar to the previous works I have seen from Denis, but with a much more heightened edge.

    I'm speechless.

    Guadagnino's remake of Argento's classic was definitely one of the best films I watched this year and one of the best cinema experiences I ever had.

    I enjoyed how different the film was to the original, essentially being a complete opposite, such as the gritty muted colours prevalent throughout the film as opposed to the neon lighting and use of primary colours in the original.

    The acting performances were absolutely brilliant, I definitely can't see a fault in…
