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.

A slow and boring movie; only the sex scene about midway through (virtually pornographic) was interesting enough to pay attention. It seems that half the film is taken up running around lost in Venice.

One of Nicholas Roeg's most chilling films.

One of the most frightening opening sequences ever on film--not gory or brutal, but just plain terrifying--gets this movie on track fast. The events that follow track Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie frolicking through Venice where they meet strange people like a blind psychic who channels like never before and a Catholic Father whose empathy seems as black as coffee. Dealing in the supernatural, where they find themselves throughout the movie, leads to or is caused by, depending on the point of view, hot sex. Uninhibited, the two stroll around naked quite a bit, making the viewer either a voyeur or learned pupil. The cinematography excels at casting moods perfectly due to the expert work of Anthony B. Richmond. Directed by Nicola Roeg, who had a background as a cinematographer, added to the haunting images, though the one you'll remember occurs in a beautiful setting on a beautiful day near the movie's opening.

Whoa, I was not expecting to watch pornography (at 30 minutes in). Nothing personal against Donald, but this film was just creepy for me. Disjointed and not thrilling. I did, however, enjoy the scenery in Venice!

Bazooka_Joe if you don't like a movie, just give us some actual reasons & don't ruin the ending for the rest of us! if you really think Donald Sutherland is "putrid" why watch his movies? Personally I found it to be a haunting masterpiece (my comment is offensive? silly)

A masterpiece from Nicholas Roeg," Don't Look Now " adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier, is a brilliantly disturbing tale of the supernatural, as renowned for it's innovative editing and haunting cinematography as its naturalistic eroticism and unforgettable climax and denouement, one of the great endings in horror history. See it.

I was so looking forward to seeing this again. Its reputation, always high, has only grown. So much so that it now has been given the full “Criterion” treatment, not only the film, but another disc dedicated to the “making of”. I wish I could say that my appreciation for it has also grown, but unfortunately I can’t. It has diminished. I have not seen it since its first release, and I was surprised at how much it has stayed with me. So much so that I couldn’t be caught up in it, and instead started seeing all the seams. (And there are plenty). What once felt subtle and terrifying now feels heavy-handed and obvious. Especially the “legendary” use of the color red. Ah well, there are films meant to be seen over and over again. With every viewing one finds something new. And then there is “Don’t Look Now”. (For me, at least, a prophetic title).
