“What scares you?”
“A killer on the loose.”
What in the goddamn hell
This movie totally lacks clarity of any kind with a bizarre narrative structure and possibly the most unconventional editing I’ve seen from any non-avant-garde film, which is really the only reason it doesn’t stand as an absolute masterpiece for me.
Even the finale, which for me was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time and what gave me insight into the genius behind this movie, gave me chills, but lacked a conclusion that would’ve given the emotions I was feeling a face.
If Roeg moved with more fluidness in his films he would probably be one of my all time favorite directors, but he gets hung up on insisting on making his transitions (both in editing and the story) seem otherworldly and ethereal when they ultimately just feel rough and dissatisfying.
