    I See You

    ★★★

    Short on writing, long on plot swerves, "I See You" is good for a thrill, but I wanted more. It bugs me when narrative elements are merely "revealed" or "suggested" unless the style of the film works that way (for example, surrealism); otherwise, tell me a story: flesh it out. The twists at the end were intriguing, but barely in sketch form. Seeing isn't everything.

    P.S. I watched the wrong one first, too *facepalm*

    ★★★★

    Excellent especially for its depiction of the after-effects of and on Manson's family: the trial, the time in Death Valley and the disillusionment of some members of the cult. Aspects of the episodes are repetitive but overall this is an interesting series, with LOADS of context footage.

    Rosemary's Baby

    ★★★★★

    It's 95 degrees outside; people are dying of the heat. But somewhere a baby is crying. Dressed in a white gown and blue robes, Rosemary recalls the Virgin Mary, as she walks through the linen-closet-cum-gates-of-hell to meet her child for the first time, knife poised in hand.

    We all know who this baby is - that baby with the red eyes who she finally, gently, rocks in its pitch black bassinet with a subverted cross mobile.

    Polanski leads us to…
