I wasn't scared, but by the end, I was so sad and haunted and disturbed. Definitely a fine film: it's still in my head and won't leave me be.

I can't think of a more beautiful or terrifying place to lose your mind in than Venice.

This mystery/suspense film by British director Nicholas Roeg is by now 45 years old. For me, it is still one of the more enjoyable works by this director. The film was shot in Venice, which is a visual bonus. One very erotic love scene by the two leading actors is another. You can argue if this scene is necessary but I think it is well done. Camera work is good. Overall, this is another good piece of cinema by Roeg.

This film is like watching Roman Polanski suffering a head injury, and trying to make the most boring/British "Giallo" film possible, with a couple of chimpanzees wrestling for a sex scene. 2 1/2 stars just for the wonderfully ridiculous reveal of the killer.

the best love making on screen ever.

Once again, the wonderful folks at the Criterion Collection have outdone themselves. Their new digital restoration of Nicolas Roeg's 1973 film version of Daphne du Maurier's Don't Look Now is everything a fan like me could want. This moody horror film is #8 on the British Film Institute's official list of the Top 100 British Films of All Time. Watch it, and you'll see why.
DON'T LOOK NOW is a hypnotic descent into the supernatural as only Daphne du Maurier and Nicolas Roeg could imagine it. Sutherland and Christie are excellent, and the production values are extraordinary, particularly Anthony Richmond's cinematography and Pino Donaggio's haunting musical score.

It was an okay movie. It was definitely 1973! I didn’t find it as “terrifying” as some others or as billed, but it’s a good story (from Daphne DuMaurier) and the acting was decent. At the point where he sees her on a boat with the 2 women after she supposedly went to England, I had pretty much figured the whole thing out, so the end was not a big surprise to me.

Exceptionally well made suspense movie with a surprise ending. One of the best movies of its genre, combining beautiful cinematography, acting and a brilliant script to make this a great movie. Don't Look Now requires the viewer to pay close attention to the film from the very opening shot to the ending and after you "see" it all, everything falls together. Although it probably is best described as a suspense movie, the movie definitely has a horror aspect to it as the main protagonist is slowly drawn to a grisly ending. When I saw this film many years ago, the ending was about as terrifying as any that I had seen in a movie theater.

The ending still sends chills up my spine every time I see this movie.

Laura Baxter: One of your children has posed a curious question: if the world is round, why is a frozen lake flat?

John Baxter: That's a good question.

Laura Baxter: [flipping through book] Ah, here it says that Lake Ontario curves more than 3 degrees from its Eastern end to its Western end. So frozen water really isn't flat.

John Baxter: Nothing is what it seems.
