Don’t Look Now (15)
Cast. Donald Sutherland, Julie Christie, Hilary Mason.
Voted the greatest British film of all time by Time Out, Nicholas Roeg's thriller is just as probing, unsettling and affecting as it was in 1973. Adapted from a Daphne Du Maurier short story, the film points to Roeg's growing interest in the otherworldly, the mysterious and co-incidence as well as his increasing ability to suspend plot and narrative through the choreography of editing. Although rightly considered one of the most haunting horror films of all time, it is also an emotionally devastating portrait of a marriage, with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland struggling with the loss of their child.
This new digital restoration scrupulously captures the colour palette of the film on its original release and has been programmed as a companion film to Bait whose director Mark Jenkins cites this as one of his favourite films.
