Don't Look Now Reviews

January 25, 2018
A devastating portrait of grief, a master class in disjunctive editing and a haunting disquisition on the use of the color red.
August 21, 2013
It's a ghost story; it's a meditation on time, memory and the poignancy of married love. And it's a masterpiece.

[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.

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.

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

A frightening and consistently inventive horror story.

This British-Italian suspenser, in which the horror gets to one almost subliminally, as in Rosemary's Baby, is superior stuff.

That dwarf in a red raincoat will fry your nerves.

A superbly chilling essay in the supernatural.

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

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.

With Sutherland and Christie in fine form it all adds up to one of Roeg's finest films and an undeniably key work in British cinema.

Roeg maps Sutherland's disintegrating psyche onto the city of Venice, with its labyrinthian alleys, murky canals, and crumbling facades.
