    Don't Look Now


    Very nice style. The aesthetic that it held, the cinematographic choices made and the pace of it was great. Again, I was convinced this was a tragic drama, and while it didn't turn out as aggressive as Possession, it did have a turn, and to have it take place in the empty streets and alleys of Italy's water town, perfect. I never knew I had a nightmare about running from something in this setting, but now I can't forget it.…

The style is beautiful from the fashion and hair to the furniture and architecture shown. The nudity and sexuality is tasteful and attached to Camille's character. It's refreshing to watch a film that challenges what was shown in the film as Hollywood micromanagement.

    What is the best about this movie is the incredible transformation scene. It is so much better than a lot of monster movies now. There are seamless mutations and great acting in it.
    The directing is good, the choices made are smart. The movie…
