Hey, that's not where her vagina is supposed to be. Or the eye of Sauron.

Regarding that particular image, I'd guess it's an aesthetic embellishment based upon Guadagnino's intial fascination with the film:
I want to pay homage because watching Suspiria by Dario Argento has been a pivotal experience for me. I think it even made part of me what it is. I saw Suspiria when I was 14, but before seeing the actual film on TV, I had seen for the first time the poster of this girl dancer with the reclining head severed and the blood flowing from her torso to the sex when I was ten, and I was shocked! I had my own internet in my head, and I was going back to the image constantly.

I don’t much like post-modernism because post-modernist has become the basket in which every mediocre person can shuffle things and pretend to do something significant, and we could also mention who use post-modernism in this way—maybe we shouldn’t. I know it’s post-modern to say, ‘I want to pay homage to the emotion I felt when I saw the movie,’ but truthfully, I want to understand what is the concept of horror in motherhood, which I think is the element that struck me when I was 14.

I can see why that's NSFW. Unmistakable nipple outline there.

That image reminds me of Videodrome.

I didn’t recognize Dakota Johnson in that picture. But then I’ve only seen her trailers and not anything she’s actually done.

Cymbeline is great, and probably even more perverse and alienating as an adaptation than this will be, so she's had practice at this sort of thing

First teaser trailer. No dialogue or spoilers for those seeking to avoid them. Really digging the look of the film, which could have only failed by imitating the original. Easy to see what Guadagnino meant when he said the visual elements leaned heavily into Fassbinder. Can't wait to hear more of the score. Obviously different from Goblin, which would again have been foolish to imitate. What they've shown here leaves me with a lot to be optimistic about. I say that as someone who considers Suspiria one of the great cinematic experiences and A Bigger Splash one of the best films of the last decade (at least).

Looks like Tilda Swinton is channeling Pina Bausch.
