Play Misty for Me ★★★★

big Clints loveletter to......being obsessed with himself?
bold as fuck directorial debut to be honest, especially in a year that was nowhere near discovering slasher films, Play Misty For Me might be one of the very very very early ones.
it looks and acts different because the genre had no tropes by this point, but this is a clearcut 70s slasher film dedicated to that real terror that comes with horrors prismatic eye for prettiness, delusion and blood.

absolutely do NOT need to see Clint in his white y-fronts/ fucking in a waterfall ever again though.
