I AM FULL OF JOY THIS EVENING.
A wild and ferocious psychological thriller that is made all the more terrifying by its lack of any actual explanation of what was really going on.
Still, as gripping as it was, it hit all the normal beats of a regular 90 minute thriller. I think it would’ve been better with a more wild third act, but still it’s a strong ride and a great film revolving around sex work in the digital age.
"It's all a mess: The one out there, the one in here, the one that's coming. Why is everyone so ready to think the worst is over?"
SUSPIRIA is a mirror to our past that warns us of our present and our future. SUSPIRIA studies what happens when we try to escape the horrors of our world for new ones, and the inevitabilities of these new worlds and how they will own and destroy us without any regard for why…
Edited my angry, incoherent review.
You just should not ever make a film where you're going to try and humanize racist, homophobic, violent, and abusive cops over the mother whose daughter was raped and murdered. THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is gross.
The praise that this is getting is baffling to me. There are so many glaring faults in this film that have everything to do with how it's framed and presented. Just an overall epic misfire.
It's really time to stop letting straight white men tell stories about race and sexual violence against women.
