    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The dread-fueled "Don't Look Now" is the Nicolas Roeg film I like the most, if only for that awesome finale that brings everything together in a bloody mess. The rest of the man's work I have little use for.

    Ωραία ατμοσφαιρική αρχή, πανέμορφη Βενετία, χλιαρή εξέλιξη, άθλιο τέλος. Ενδιάμεσα εμφανίσεις από μπάτσο,παπά,τεχνίτες,τσαντισμένους Ιταλούς,τον πιο μίζερο κινηματογραφικό ξενοδόχο, δύο και καλά creepy γριές (η μία ασταμάτητα να μου θυμίζει την Κούρκουλα στην Λάμψη), μια ερωτική σκηνή που κρατάει άβολα παραπάνω απ'όλα τα υπόλοιπα points της ταινίας και μία σκηνή όπου πηγαίνει ο Σάδερλαντ στην τουαλέτα κ βγαίνοντας λέει στην Κρίστι ε μην πας τουαλέτα για λίγη ώρα.

    Hoop-Tober: Part XIV - Death in Venice

    An artsy psychological horror movie set in Venice. The pace is slow, and even after seeing it all, I'm still not sure what was the meaning of this film. So yes, it is slightly boring at the times. Thankfully Roeg is the master at creating atmosphere through inventive editing and cinematography; even the scenes where nothing much is happening feels creepy, like something is not right, or something bad is going to happen…

    And its worst, 70s cinema can seem almost absurdly dated to modern viewers; at its best, it churned out inimitable masterpieces containing the best of what came before reworked in the anything-goes modern style. Don't Look Now is a prime example of the latter, starting with a plot similar to what filmmakers working in Britain in the previous decade such as Losey and Dearden were doing and infusing it with a druggy genius. Don't Look Now's plot isn't incredible in…

    I read the short story before I watched the movie—but even so I couldn't for the life of me remember how this thing ended. Maybe I was too distracted by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie rolling around nude for forty-five minutes straight (it was forty-five minutes, right?) to think clearly.

    Look, I'm not a prude or anything, but that sex scene seemed gratuitous for this particular movie. I don't know. I guess I've just seen waaay more of Donald Sutherland…

    Stop #17 for Hoop-Tober

    Didn't know what to expect of the film going into it, but I was immediately captured by it's masterful editing style. It's eerie and effective at drawing in a paranormal element through a primarily technical achievement which is fascinating. I think I was more distractedly impressed by the filmmaking than the plot however, definitely one to rewatch as there seems a lot more going on than I bargained for.

    Next Up Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Halloween Month!

    Never been to Venice, but I really want to go...

    I like this film. Following the tragic death of their daughter, the Baxters go to Venice.

    Venice doesn't help though... Visions are rife. Red coats are round every corner.

    It's eerie.

    Roeg sets the bar very high with this stunning example of psychological, & paranormal, horror. A Multi layered masterpiece. No matter how many times I watch this classic it always throws up more food for thought with its depth and imagery.

    Scariness level: Water/Blood

    Director Project

    Director: Nicolas Roeg (First Film)

    Originally, I had intended this to be the last of hoop-tober and for it to bridge back into my Director Project seamlessly but due to availability and haste on my part to finish with the project (I've enjoyed it very much so hopefully doesn't sound like I haven't). I own the blu ray, it's a very nice copy and I've already ordered the other films I…

    This movie is obsessed with details. t's packed with tiny bits of business and observations.

    I would categorize this movie as a horror movie even though it contains almost none of the trappings of traditional horror. It's paced like a funereal romance. A reflection on death and loss. It's more sad than scary, which is part of what makes it great.
