    Haunting and distressing, this is the too-rare horror film that isn't interested in outright scaring you so much as generating increasing feelings of unease, dread, grief, and desperation. Roeg's films always have a dreamlike quality with their often surreal imagery, evocative environments, and elliptical timelines, but Don't Look Now veers deeper into nightmare.

    An oblique and labyrinthine network of twists and turns - reflected in dead eyes and the misty pools of the past and the present - that does little to give away its grand design until its very last moments. Artfully composed, manifestly unsettling, borne with excellent performances from Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland, and featuring the most breathless example of associative editing I have ever seen, Don't Look Now is a superlative slow-burn horror masterpiece that thrives on disorientation and ill-feeling. Also a completely unmissable opportunity to see Big Daddy Sutherland in the nude.

    There is a great deal to look at in Don't Look Now, the seminal British horror film from cinematographer-turned-director Nicholas Roeg.

    It's a film that's bookended by two unforgettable horror scenes. Based on the short story Not After Midnight by Daphne Du Maurier, it traces a grieving couple (Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland) who relocate to Venice after the sudden death of their daughter. In the opening scene we see a young girl in a red raincoat bending down over…

    This movie gets better with every viewing. There are so many layers upon layers that make your brain spin. Everything adds up to something regardless of what it might be and that's kind of the theme of the film. Every sequence of events leads to an end and if we only knew the end before it happened, we might have done something differently. It happens all the time. If I had just waited ten more seconds to pull my car…

    Vamos a hiperbolear: veamos cuántos "best of's" podemos sacar de Don't Look Now. Empezando por la más obvia:

    - ¿La mejor escena de sexo de la historia del cine? Muy posiblemente, si.

    - El montaje del clímax, ¿es el mejor montaje climático que se ha hecho? Tal vez.

    - ¿La enanita más aterradora de la historia? Definitivamente.

    - El mejor retrato de Venecia que he visto en una película? Si, si y si. Mil veces si.

    - ¿La película mejor…

    There is a companion piece that relates to and can be immediately watched after Rosemary's Baby and that is Don't Look Now, the first film I've seen from Nicolas Roeg.

    As the film's runtime grows later and later, dread and uneasiness grow bigger and bigger, stranger things start happening, and you can't help but be nervous as to what comes next.

    This is a film that I watched immediately after a exploration of r/MorbidReality and 2 or 3 games of…

    I had never heard of this movie then saw someone recommend it on another site. So I thought what the hell I like Donald Sutherland I will give it a shot. Well I am not sure what to think there were some thing I liked and some things I didn’t let’s start with the positive. It is beautifully shot. I loved the intermingling of the shots in the beginning with the kids playing outside and the adults inside. Definitely different…

    Looking at other reviews, I think I'll have to give another look at this. I thought it was kind of tedious, but I saw it at a less contemplative age.

    Quite possibly the best edited film ever

    Donald Sutherland makes a lot of melodramatic groaning sounds, the camera zooms in on just about everything, and not much of interest happens. I'm beginning to lose hope for "horror classics".

    I have a tumultuous love-hate relationship with the films of Nicolas Roeg. I enjoyed Insignificance, and yet I despise The Man Who Fell to Earth and didn't particularly care for Walkabout. Maybe it's the frazzled, schizophrenic feeling that his films give me that can be off-putting, but whatever it is, at least I can finally say I've found another film of his I enjoy.

    While I don't quite yet believe that Don't Look Now is necessarily a masterpiece (pending some…
