    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.

    A chilling occult horror thriller that looks incredible and has incredible tension. Fantastic acting all around and deft pacing throughout. Child death has never been so dreadful!

    Toda una experiencia. Venecia como capital del desasosiego existencial. Planos refractados y simétricos como reflejo del inconsciente. Uno de los polvos más naturales y mejor filmados de la historia del cine (en la época se rumoreaba que era sexo real). El rojo obsesivo. Las carcajadas de las viejas. El italiano como cacofonía. El espíritu del 'giallo'. Ideas visionarias cuyos ecos se perciben en películas como las de David Lynch o 'El proyecto de la Bruja de Blair'. Y una escalofriante escena final que me sigue poniendo los pelos de punta aún cuando escribo estas líneas.

    Definitivamente, tengo que ver todas las películas de Nicolas Roeg.

    After Laura and John Baxter lose their only child in a horrible drowning, they are greeted by strange sightings of her throughout their everyday lives. When two old ladies approach them in Italy with news that their daughter may still be alive, it seems too good to be true. Perhaps it is...

    Movie #146

    My 2 Cents: First off...the above description is just wrong. The daughter is not alive. One of the old ladies is psychic and claims she can…

    I watched this while going through emotional troubles that at the time I didn't even realize were there. Rewatched it with a group of peers months later and had to leave the room in tears because it struck such a strange chord in me. The latter half of 2013 was just a bad time for me and it's obvious if you've been reading my reviews.

    Letterboxd files this under three genres: Drama, Suspense, Horror. Well it certainly is a drama, first box ticked. It certainly is suspenseful, the first 5-10 minutes sucks you in completely, from then on your on the edge of your seat...waiting for anything to happen. I guess it also ticks the horror box, as I was terrified...that I might die from boredom.

    Was very lucky to see a BFI 35mm print of this at the UW Cinematheque. I mention this only because a little part of me thinks that's the only way this movie could ever be seen. So much of it, from the elusive nature of the narrative to, more obviously, Roeg's use of discoloration and emulsion imagery feel like its referring specifically to the medium that you're watching it on. An incredibly moving, immersive experience.

    As part of my 'Ben's first World Tour' project: Britain

    Finally I know what Von Trier's Antichrist would have been like had it not been so indulgent and manipulative and disgusting. Man, Nicholas Roeg was a fucking genius. He used every filmic ingredient at his disposal to build on the universal psyche of his films which resulted in some of the most visceral, unsettling and uncomfortable experiences in cinema's arsenal. There is an incredible cohesion between all the parts in…
