DON'T LOOK NOW
1973, Paramount, 110 min, Dir: Nicolas Roeg
Director Nicolas Roeg’s atmospheric adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s story is a haunting meditation on the consequences of repressing traits inside us that could mean the difference between life and death. Antiquities restorer Donald Sutherland and wife Julie Christie, in mourning after the accidental drowning of their young daughter, journey to Venice during the off-season to help renovate a church. But their encounter with two strange sisters, one of whom is a blind clairvoyant, pulls them into shadowy back alleys and deserted canals and onto the radar of a warped serial killer terrorizing the city. A brilliant variation on Italy’s homegrown giallo thriller genre then enjoying success in early 1970s European cinema. 35mm archival print.
1992, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, USA, Dir: Nicolas Roeg
Theresa Russell stars as Marie Davenport, a lapsed Catholic unhappily married to a physician (Mark Harmon). The couple go to Acapulco, where Marie plans to announce she’s leaving for another man - but before she gets the chance, her husband is run over by a speedboat. When Dr. Davenport’s body later disappears from a hospital autopsy slab, the apparent resurrection challenges everything Marie believes. Co-starring James Russo, Talia Shire and Seymour Cassel, this haunting drama will hold viewers in thrall up to its final twist. 35mm
