Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. The second bonus tie-in of this month is dedicated to Dario Argento’s Suspiria in connection to our upcoming episode on Luca Guadagnino’s notorious remake over on the main show. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the disconnect between the film’s popularity abroad and in Italy, whether it functions as an extension of giallo, a fable or something else, and if it has enough meat on the bone to satisfy the desires of a seasoned genre aficionado. You will also hear us opine on Udo Kier’s charm (again), weird James Bond connotations and Jessica Harper’s convenient sleepiness.
Tune in and enjoy!
