Meandering yet extremely tense

"This one who's blind. She's the one that can see."

Despite being decades old, Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now remains an uncompromisingly honest and staggeringly evocative motion picture which tackles the mysteries of life, death, fear, hope, love and grief. The movie stems from the pen of English writer Daphne du Maurier, whose works of literature are a rich source for filmmakers - ... read more

This a film that requires, but rewards, close watching. A film really about coincidence and fate, about the significance of little things in the greater course of lives, and whether, with hindsight, events are predestined or, well, just accidental. The suspense almost killed me, so many layers, so many twists, so much fun trying to piece the puzzle together. And when it does come together at the e... read more

didnt really enjoy it yeah I understood what the film was trying to do but the majority of the film is Donald Sutherland walking around a bizarrely quiet Venice - with the occasional bizarre event (sort of) happening. Worth a go - but dont expect too much.

John and Laura Baxter are living in Venice when they meet a pair of elderly sisters, one of whom claims to be psychic. She insists that she sees the spirit of the Baxters' daughter, who recently drowned. Laura is intrigued, but John resists the idea. He, however, seems to have his own psychic flashes, seeing their daughter walk the streets in her red cloak, as well as Laura and the sisters on a funeral gondola.

"5 out of 5 Classic. I wouldn't recommend watching this with your family, but are people regularly watching these types of films with their family? Anyway, there's one reeeeeeeeally long and graphic sex scene. I cannot emphasize enough how unending it was, and I didn't need to see that much of Donald Sutherland. "

My Top 199 Favorite Horror Movies of All Time (199 movies items)

"After the accidental death of their daughter, a grieving American couple move to Venice for professional reasons. However, after they arrive, they begin to experience a few strange occurrences that hint that maybe, their little girl is trying to "message" them from beyond. Sophisticated drama meets art-house spookiness meets innovative storytelling with a little bit of graphic-for-its-time lovemaking thrown in for good measure. Don't look now, but I think that all may add up to a modern classic "

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even if I really liked it, to be honest, I have to admit that it didn’t really blow me away though. The main issue, I guess, was that there were some big chunks of time during which nothing much really happened. Still, there is no doubt that Nicolas Roeg delivered here a fascinating movie above all thanks to some stellar cinematography and editing. Indeed, the whole thing started with the most nightmarish intro you could imagine. Afterwards, Venice had never look so spooky before and the damned thing was just seriously ominous and unsettling. Of course, the fact that most of the action took place abroad also increased the sense of alienation experienced by the two main characters. On t” read more

Don't Look Now

“When he was (finally) presented with his (overdue) Honorary Academy Award in 2017, Whoopi Goldberg specifically highlight Donald Sutherland’s enigmatic, gripping, haunted performance in Don’t Look Now as a primary example of his talents as an actor. She not displayed great taste in cherry picking this film as a standout of his exemplary career but underscoring just how humane and tangible his work in this film remains. Sutherland plays a man grappling with the death of a child, now genuflecting for an escape from the all-encompassing grief he and his wife are experiencing.   His wife (Julie Christie) indulges in the spiritual and supernatural world, frequenting a psychic and praying for visions of the future where the darkness is worked through. While he buries himself in here and ” read more

"Grieving parents are told that their recently deceased daughter is trying to reach out to them and soon their perception of reality begins to change in the face of strange occurences. A stunning use of color, symbolism, and editing abound in this highly influential flick from the legendary Nicolas Roeg. Stylistically indebted to Hitchcock, this supernatural thriller set the stage for a lot we now take for granted in the genre while simultaneously presenting us with a striking look at the grievin"
