    Devilman - Volume 1: The Birth

    ★★★★

    legendary dub that somehow accidentally captures the goofball cadence of go nagai’s dialogue. beautiful, detailed animation and gleeful gore; flesh melting and running like mercury, blood and brains and viscera all gushing forth in abundance. I Love Anime!

    Suspiria

    ★★

    if argento’s objective was simply to overwhelm, SUSPIRIA 2018 wants to overwhelm with information, context, allusions - like a bloviating undergrad chatting up a disinterested classmate.

    loath as i am to spend any more Mindshare on this logy mess - worth nothing that both the fascism/nazism & the occultist concerns of this movie are present in SUSPIRIA 77. helena blavatsky (markos), the SS officers in the park scene, casting valli from EYES WITHOUT A FACE ... the remake merely shouts them at you. 

    SUSPIRIA 18 is essential viewing for people who find POSSESSION boring and “tonally uneven.”
