#704: Suspiria / Top 5 Uses of Color

This episode is sponsored by the color red.

For his remake of the Dario Argento cult horror classic SUSPIRIA, Luca Guadagnino ("Call Me By Your Name") keeps the '70s German dance academy setting, but adds a lot of real-world political upheaval to the original's bloody witches' brew. Adam and Josh debate the effectiveness of Guadagnino and company's intellectual approach to the story's giallo origins. Plus: there are color movies and then there are movies that have color. Giants of world cinema Kurosawa, Bergman and Hitchcock knew how to flaunt it, but so do an emerging class of young filmmakers who make savvy use of the cinematic palette.
