The new Suspiria is more of a rebirth than a remake. A spellbinding ambitious art film that cleverly, albeit brutally, assaults the senses with its nightmarish imagery and explores unrelenting violence. The violence that occurs through abuses of power, both with politics and with women. It feels as timely today as it would have been confined within the wall of 1970s’ Berlin, which is where this very feminist horror epic takes place.
The Oscar winning film lives up to the hype and treats to an engaging romance that never falls victim to cliche. A well directed drama with a superb performance by newcomer Timothée Chalamet.
Recent Oscar winner Call Me By Your Name will screen at the 25th Prague International Film Festival (Febio Fest) as a part of the festival’s queer section.
