My first viewing, but wow! This film takes visual storytelling to a whole new level! And the use of sound is extraordinary, whether it's doorbells ringing, phones ringing, flies buzzing or knives slashing and since there's a limited amount of actual music they become the soundtrack. It's a tough watch as there are plenty of vile images (the skinned rabbit which is just left to be devoured by the f... read more

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely watch it again whenever I have the opportunity. Back in those days, after making only one full length feature in Poland (the also brilliant ‘Nóz w wodzie’), Roman Polanski didn’t hang around very long and took off pretty much right away to start an international career. Eventually, his first stop would be in ... read more

Description: Roman Polanski was still a newcomer to the world of cinema when he unleashed this unforgettable exercise in skin-crawling terror. Repulsion was the Polish director's first film in English, but that hardly mattered: much of the movie is as wordless (and as weird) as the silent Nosferatu. The young Catherine Deneuve plays a Belgian girl stranded in '60s London, a shy beauty with no social skills. When her sister leaves their shared flat, Deneuve goes gradually, quietly, completely mad. Her world becomes Polanski's paintbox, as the devilish director distorts reality via a series of surrealistic touches (grasping hands that protrude ... (more)

"Jealousy, Depression, Loneliness. A really intense horror movie with great acting, directing & cinematography. Truly shows what a human can go through when they let they snap after holding too much in. "

My Movie Highlights of the 1960s (+Watchlists) (90 movies items)

"My Highlights in this movie of Roman Polanski are the beautiful Catherine Deneuve and the b/w cinematography with it's play of light and shadows. Also the music is appropriate. But I didn't like the story that much, most of the time nothing happens - so it gets quite boring. my rating: 6,75 points (the first hour I rate with 7-8 points, the rest is 6 points)"
