Donald Sutherland, Julie Christie, Hilary Mason in Don't Look Now (1973)
Left: Donald Sutherland holding his child is one of the memorable shots in the film. Right: Hilary Mason as a psychic who befriends the grief-stricken Laura (played by Julie Christie).

A story of tragedy
And coping with it.
A story of prophecy
Waiting to unknit.

Don't Look Now (1973) Film Rating
The movie is a drama than a horror story. It is a well-directed film but is not entertaining.

 

Don't Look Now (1973) Direction Movie Rating
The performances of Donald Sutherland and Hilary Mason are natural and believable.

There’s nothing much to say:
A short expanded story
But it’s really not so scary.
Good actors, good direction,
Though the pace feels like slow motion.
Glad I have watched it once
Coz next time I won’t have the endurance.

Nicolas Roeg quote
