Fonte: www.alexvisani.com
Improntato sullo stile horror psicologico che ha caratterizzato "Rosemary's Baby" e "L'inquilino del III piano", il film di Polanski racconta in un crescendo di tensione, la dicesa verso la follia della protagonista Carol. Questa vive con la sorella un rapporto di semi-soggezione psicologica e di attaccamento morboso che la spinge a detestarne l'amante con cui la do... read more

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

A classic

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)

"First viewing - July 5th I've been hearing about Repulsion for so long now that when I found it while debating what to pick up during the 50% off Criterion sale this month I figured I'd spring for it and hope I liked it well enough to keep it. In hindsight I wished I'd picked it up as a rental back when I lived in Austin, because I don't think I'll bother with it again. That's not to say it's a bad film, mind you. Deneuve's performance is outstanding, and there are some truly memorable moments "

"Repulsion remains a thrilling experiment in sang-Freud, its two-way prism of audio-visual embellishments intuiting a woman’s fractured psyche and catching super-cool flashes of the audience’s perverse cine-desires. A searing, clockwork synergy, the lucid sights and sounds of Carole’s world are conduits and conspirators of madness and pleasure. Roman Polanski’s triumph is a weird, tense depolarization of space, a chipping away at psychological walls so that fear and desire become synonymo"

" Notes: 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 England and, there, he made his first genuine masterpiece. Indeed, if his directing debut was pretty impressive, this sophomore effort was just quite mind-blowing. Basically, there was no much plot whatsoever, but instead,"
