Frightening Levels of Trivia, Shit And Minutiae
I love that soundtrack, specially in the opening scene. apart from that a dud...it is surprising I have read some really deep stuff by serious academics who take him very very seriously. something about postmodernism and self-reflexivity etc etc..
check out these for examplehttp://www.kinoeye.org/index_02_11.phphttp://www.offscreen.com/biblio/essays/argento_maestro/
The soundtrack is clever in parts, sure. After a while, it becomes a major distraction. There are a few other things I enjoy about Suspiria. But the expository dialogue is almost embarassing. Or maybe horror films need exposition.
I think I have to see it. When you read so much about a film, it seems bigger than it could actually be :)
