    I remember really disliking this movie when I first watched it as a fresh faced undergraduate student. Various so-and-sos throughout horror haunts often praise Don't Look Now as one of the greatest chillers ever made. Boy, was I disappointed! Back then, I expected a horror movie. Or, you know, to actually feel scared at some point. Chalk it up to young and dumb film inexperience, but the first viewing definitely left me underwhelmed.

    A good eight years later, when the…

    A couple lose their daughter to a drowning in England. He is a church restorer and has a job in Venice. She comes along to be with him and meets two elderly ladies who reveal a secret to her.

    Later they give a warning for the husband and whether he heeds it is the climax of the movie.

    Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, they portray an intimacy that seems natural and real.

    The plot is fine but the special effects…

    Beyond the Fragile Geometry of Space

    Seeing is believing, but feeling is knowing. Surfaces reflect and distort, a frozen pond isn't flat as it appears. Surfaces also shatter. The acid in the air, over time, will eat away at the edifice of a cathedral. Time most definitely is not a flat circle.

    A very British horror story that pits a rational minded skeptic against a cornucopia of incidents that challenge him to drop his guard and confront his grief (before…

    Might watch again to truly appreciate its playful chronology and editing. It is haunting and slow moving, not really terrifying but provokes dread. The ending montage is masterful, the story is all right too.

    Terrifying, a movie that scares with atmosphere rather than people pooping out. It works, too well in fact I may never sleep again.

    Director Nicolas Roeg makes Venice seem like a terrifying labyrinth in Don't Look Now, but while exploring the possibilities of being lost in a city full of canals and the mysterious body of water that runs through it like blood in veins, there is the constant reminder that nothing is what is seems. Themes of a grand scale are mixed and mingled together from grieving for a dead child to clairvoyance to the intimacy of marriage. Don't Look Now might…

    You know the old adage about pretentious directors using dwarves to achieve cheap surrealism? With the briliant atmosphere of unease he cultivated for this movie, you better believe Nic Roeg well and earned his cheap surreal dwarf.

    Directed by Nicolas Roeg this film based on the short story of the same name stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. A couple struggle to over come the death of their daughter as the husband works on restoring a church in Venice.

    This is a real slow burner of a film but is a riveting watch filled with slightly creepy moments that you just can not quite put your finger on what is wrong. The plot is a tale of…
