Don't Look Now Directed by Nicolas Roeg
Exquisitely designed, each scene is pierced with the color red—curtains, scarves, ink, boots, long johns on the line—connecting with the daughter’s red slicker, and the hooded figure scurrying through the Venice night.

For all its surface disorientation, Don’t Look Now is by the end fully unmysterious, reconciling the everyday and the uncanny in a way that locates reassurance and peace of mind even in violent, unfathomable tragedy.

Roeg makes brilliant use of Venice’s architecture and design, rendering the city a fantastic, maze-like world. (The eerie, mood-enhancing score is by Pino Donaggio, who would go on to be Brian De Palma’s regular composer.) The leads are superb, playing off each other brilliantly and sexily; the film’s centerpiece is a complexly edited sex scene that aroused no small controversy upon first release.
