"Don't Look Now" (1973)

2 posts in this topic

Nicolas Roeg's haunting thriller looks stunning in blu ray.   A very creepy film but it's more supernatural drama than horror .  Great photography, editing  and score by Pinno Donnagio

Christie and Sutherland are perfect- and those women playing the strange sisters are priceless.

I don't like Blu-Ray, myself. Less is more with me. Anything I see digitally enhanced and rendered on a flat screen always looks strange, weird, and false. As if its been shot with an electron microscope.

Anyway this is one of my favorite horror flicks; easily earning a place in my Top Twenty. Source material by horror wiz, Daphne DuMaurier. Fine performances by the two leads; superb location shoot...head-and-shoulders over anything made today. Simple, cryptic, inscrutable, eerie. Not 'spoon feed the viewer'-type storytelling.
