Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Venice is definitely not for lovers in Nicolas Roeg's 1973 gothic chiller. Based on a Daphne du Maurier short story, Don't Look Now tells the story of a married couple, superbly portrayed by Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland, whose to visit that romantic Italian city is tainted by their grief over their recently deceased daughter. Their stay in the familiar tourist destination takes on a nightmarish aura as they are overcome by eerie, synchronistic forebodings of worse things to come. Roeg unfolds the narrative slowly, with a subliminal seductiveness that gives sinister undertones to the simplest gestures and creates an overpowering aura of lurking danger. The wounded couple appears emotionally frozen in the aftermath of their loss, and they are believably susceptible to a blind old woman who claims to have visions of their daughter. But Venice is the real star here. It is not the sunny Italian playground of movies like Summertime or A Little Romance but the menacing city of films like Paul Schrader’s The Comfort of Strangers and, of course, Visconti’s Mahler-soaked adaptation of Death in Venice. Roeg presents Venice as a great, ancient maze, its gray decay freighted with Jungian archetypes and psychological metaphors. The result is one of the most enigmatic and unsettling thrillers of all time.
All Movie Guide
Director Nicolas Roeg made several puzzling, complex films in his prime; Don't Look Now is one of his most enigmatic and certainly his spookiest. Roeg masterfully plays with psychological themes and Venice's labyrinthine settings, using images of a red-coated figure scurrying along the canals to create an almost unbearable emotional intensity. Based on a short story by Daphne Du Maurier, Don't Look Now succeeds far better than more complex horror stories in taunting the viewer's nerves. It is never grisly, but uses dense atmospherics and a dazzlingly firm directorial hand to create a fascinating exploration of the supernatural. It is a far better film than many more popular films of the genre that feature children and psychic or supernatural links.

    An Understated Masterpiece of Horror

    This is a truly artistic work of the macabre, from ''Walkabout'' director Nicholas Roeg. The story is of a couple, John and Laura Baxter (played by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie), grieving over the accidental drowning of their small daughter. They move to Venice, where John works on the restoration of a church. The couple meet two sisters in a cafe, one blind and a psychic, who tells them their daughter is ''happy'' in her new world. Laura is comforted by this, but John scoffs, but is haunted by visions of a small figure darting around the canals, dressed in the same red rain coat his daughter used to wear.... The backdrop of Venice is not shown romantically here. It is crumbling and old in the dead of winter, depressing and emotionally draining and perfectly suits this film. There is a fantastic use of colour,(black and red notably) and good shock moments, including jerkey, quick images. There is also an equisite and well crafted love scene, one of the most famous in film history, which Donald Sutherland supposedly said was ''Absolutley horrible to shoot.'' The chilling finale, fine acting and and beautiful filming make this an ingenious erotic, supernatural thriller, that is highly understated today. All members are at their peak in this picture and it is truly emotionally affecting. While it is not a frightening as it used to be, it is still a masterpiece.
