  1. Howard Orr's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Cammell continues European filmmakers' fascination in the wide open spaces of the States, much in the mould of "Paris, Texas", "Zabriskie Point" and Leone's Westerns. Yet in Cammell's film, whilst the eerie tension between the vast American vistas and its culture is present, there is little insight as to the characters, or the fascination that many people have with regards to civilisation, isolation and psychopathy.

  2. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Unfortunately feels more like a cheap Cannon slasher movie with pretentions to depth than an actual work of intellectual cinema. Visually it has astounding sequences - channelling everyone from Argento & Antonioni to Roeg & Cassavetes - but the film isn't very well developed. Cammell seems to think that poor plotting creates something elliptical while his characters lack credibility. The actors are excellent though.

  3. Andre's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Indescribable: every element is just slightly off, making it not quite a rural mystery, not quite a blackly comic soap, not quite a slasher...but still quite extraordinary. Cammell's sense of texture is excellent, but what sells it are two ace performances form Cathy Moriarty (almost as natural as Harry Dean Stanton) and David Keith. And the ending is pretty Fuller-esque too (always a good thing)

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film White of the Eye

    Huge disappointment. A goldfish swimming in blood, is this art? Already forgotten.

  5. marco's rating of the film White of the Eye

    cinema of the abstract

  6. Andrew Miller's rating of the film White of the Eye

    The big reveal has stayed with me-- do we ever really know other people?

  7. EYELASHMITE's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Poor kid, with that god awful haircut. As for the film, it was alright.

  8. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Wasn't thrilling as I expected, though Cammell's style does resembles Roeg's masterfully and has some giallo-like moments. Storyline got me lost a bit in between before kicking back up. Weird how I saw Keith's side being revealed towards the end.

  9. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Very intriguing Argento-meets-Antonioni-meets-Roeg-meets-Kubrick psycho-thriller which sadly descends into silly genre cliché in the last act. A key stylistic influence on David Lynch and Oliver Stone's 1990s films, I'll wager.

  10. Tom Cottey's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Intriguing, near psychedelic direction from Donald Cammell in this superior and idiosyncratic contribution to the slasher genre. It's up there with Deep Red (Argento) and Santa Sangre (Jodorowsky.)

  15. curmudgeon pudding's rating of the film White of the Eye

    It's the singular product of a truly demented mind.

  16. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film White of the Eye

    The way the movie sympathizes with the dehumanization, obsession, and abuse of the male ego amongst 80s hedonism is pretty damn remarkable! If not amoral, to a degree. But is there much of a difference between a normal thought process compared to an extreme thought process? So for the filmmaking, the movie is stellar. The kill scenes and score are highlights! Defiantly my favorite 80s erotic thriller!

  17. Westley's rating of the film White of the Eye

    What the hell did I just watch? This movie is so bad it could be considered a new form of avant-garde filmmaking. I will give it credit for being utterly unique.

  21. Sean's rating of the film White of the Eye

    Slow moving psychological thriller, Cammell has an interesting style of direction. Very creepy and intense in some parts, nicely acted by Moriarty and Keith.
