Well, its a matter of how satisfied I am by the time the end credits roll, I guess. There are some really good moments in Susperia -- the blindman and his dog, and that whole opening taxi cab ride set to Goblin's score -- which have brought me back for more than a few repeat viewings.

Argento's stuff often strikes me as muddled, stagy, and self-indulgent.


I must agree. Although I haven't seen Suspiria, the other Argento flicks I'm familiar with are guilty of all the complaints listed above. I found a lot to like in Tenebre and Stendhal Syndrome (especially the sense of anticipation and voyeurism), but not enough to earn a passing grade, in my opinion. I can't get excited about Argento at all.
