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.

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.

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.
