Michael Nyquist

  1. Tilda Swinton, Suspiria, Italy-US, 2016.    Eight years earlier, when David Gordon Green was due to re-make Dario Argento’s giallo classic, Nyqvist (a fan of the original) was due to be Dr Klemperer,  much concerned with the goings-on at  Germany’s prestigious – and mysterious – Tanz Dance Akademie.  Swinton, already playing Madame Blanc. was hidden in the shrink’s credit as Lutz Ebersdorf (second of her three roles).   Argento was unimpresed by his director friend Luca Guadagnino’s re-tread.  “It betrayed the spirit of the original,” he told Italy’s Rai 1 TV channel in 2019.  “There is no fear.”   And DGG stayed stayed true to  the neighbourhood, producer-directing 2020s’ cinema or TV chapters of The  Exorcist, Halloween  and Hellraiser.
