"...One of the most dynamic and radical British films ever made..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/13/2002
"...Nicolas Roeg's 1973 film remains one of the great horror masterpieces working not with fright, which is easy, but with dread, grief and apprehension..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2002
"Roeg's masterly adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's story is as much a meditation on grief as a conventional horror pic..."
Total Film - 06/01/2011
5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's radicalism and haunting power are part of Roeg's ongoing fascination with rendering subconscious states intensely cinematic."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Working with elements of the traditional horror genre - second sight, ESP, warnings from the dead, a mad killer - and cinematography of disquieting beauty with a dreamlike sense of dislocation, director Nicolas Roeg weaves a fabric of anxiety that questions all reality. The evocative use of the back streets of Venice is a sinister participant in the action based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier. This intensely erotic and macabre film boasts outstanding performances by Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.
Director Nicolas Roeg's DON'T LOOK NOW is a psychological horror film about a couple who take a trip to Venice after the tragic drowning of their daughter. There the father continues to be haunted by glimpses of the little, red-coated girl darting around street corners.
