Don't Look Now ★★★★

DON'T LOOK NOW reveals itself slowly and seductively. Nicolas Roeg is content to show you interesting people doing interesting things for two hours, with the plot only becoming a predominant concern at key moments. For the rest of the runtime you're enjoying gorgeous Venice, seen through the eyes of a lanky art restorer, played by Donald Sutherland, and his wife.

I like how the movie flirts with horror elements as well as thriller elements, but it's most forwardly a character drama about a couple slowly going out of phase with reality after the drowning of their child. Their blessed life is full of aesthetic beauty and lacking any financial concerns, and still they are doomed.
