Really not my cup of tea...that's all I've really got to say about that in the most British way possible!
So yeah I watched this as a Christmas film because why the fuck not!!
Just ridiculously awful in every conceivable way but God damn it you have to love how cringe inducing and plain bonkers some of the segments are!
I shall be watching this again next year!
WHISK STIR WHISK WHISK STIR BEAT 😏
Very distantly related to the original, this film stands on its own as a complete reimagining!
I loved a lot of this! Guadagnino digs deeply into the themes of gender, power, sexual expression, and sisterhood. A lot of the ideas are very well expressed throughout and are done so through striking imagery, archaic direction and cinematographic choices that harken back to the 1970s.
I really did feel like I got more out of this than the original but again it's not worth comparing as they are two different beasts!
