A natureza onírica e labiríntica do filme é bem representada por Veneza, criando um clima de constante inquietação, mas a direção soa datada e o roteiro não consegue fugir das convenções do gênero, desperdiçando a ótima dinâmica do casal principal.
| Original Score: 3/5

Not only do you probably have better things to do, but so, I'm sure, do most of the people connected with the film.

Roeg's expertly conceived visual metaphors sustain a powerful foreboding.

As an essay on cinematic language, Don't Look Now is ingenious ... As a work of storytelling, Don't Look Now isn't as clean-cut.

Electric Sheep
August 21, 2013
It is a messy examination of entropy: things fall and fall apart and we try to restore what can't be repaired and recover what has already been irretrievably lost.

Nicolas Roeg's 1973 film remains one of the great horror masterpieces, working not with fright, which is easy, but with dread, grief and apprehension.

[Don't Look Now] takes the viewer on a winding, unpredictable trip that starts as a meditation on grief and ends as a supernatural thriller.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

The viewer is left with the question of which of John Baxter's aphorisms to believe: "Seeing is believing" or "Nothing is what it seems."
Tom Hutchinson
Radio Times
August 21, 2013
This is director Nicolas Roeg's masterpiece -- the fear-drenched mood of alienation is sustained right up until the unforgettable climax.

Arguably the subtlest giallo ever made, it's a film to heighten the senses.
Scott Weinberg
April 3, 2005
Crisp, odd, and quietly very creepy.
| Original Score: 4/5

Like some manic slasher on the loose, Nic Roeg cuts compulsively, severing the natural arteries between cause and effect to expose a more irrational kind of narrative continuum...a true classic, worth looking at not just now but long into the future.

Antagony & Ecstasy
November 9, 2008
The most adult horror picture I've ever encountered, or indeed can even imagine.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

August 18, 2013
it was maverick British filmmaker Nicolas Roeg's destiny to transform du Maurier's strange psychological thriller into an emphatically mysterious tale of second sight and looming death in 1973.

Roeg's purposely disjointed vision keeps you in near-constant dread.

A superbly chilling essay in the supernatural.

Don't Look Now uses the occult and the inexplicable as Henry James did: to penetrate the subconscious, to materialize phantoms from the psyche.

This British-Italian suspenser, in which the horror gets to one almost subliminally, as in Rosemary's Baby, is superior stuff.
Christopher Null
August 26, 2002
Extremely creepy.

Like all great horror films, the reason it all feels so creepy is because our imagination makes it so.
