    This film was visually gorgeous and had great sound design. I absolutely loved the mood, the style and the locations. That said, it's a pretty cold movie. Despite Susannah York's great performance, it's difficult to be emotionally invested in her character, but somehow I was okay with that. The coldness felt appropriate for the detached way in which she interacts with the ghosts of her past and present. This might not fully land emotionally, but I really liked watching it.

    This was a refreshingly weird film. Definitely not for everyone. This was my first Strickland film, so I had no idea what to expect, but I was all in especially with the giallo elements.  I was slightly disappointed with the structure of this story, but I think it ultimately pays off.

    Expertly directed with profound character detail.  Beautifully sad.

    Great set pieces, emotionally impactful and suspenseful. Also a beautifully shot film. Sometimes cliche and a bit unbelievable, it's ultimately a fun watch.
