Don’t Look Now
+ intro by Roger Luckhurst, Birkbeck, University of London
Nicolas Roeg’s thrilling classic, starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.
Dir Nicolas Roeg
With Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland, Hilary Mason
In Roeg’s greatest film (from a short story by Daphne Du Maurier), a couple go to Venice to recuperate following their daughter’s death by drowning, and meet a woman who claims to be in touch with the girl… Both a terrific thriller and a piercing study of grief and guilt, it turns Venice into a ghostly labyrinth of faint hopes and dark memories.
