Le locataire Réalisé par Roman Polanski
The most fascinating aspect of The Tenant is the general lack of ambiguity in the scenario: grim and inhospitable and xenophobic as those around him… may seem, Trelkovsky’s accusations are so off-the-wall, and his actions so increasingly wonky, that we’re not left to even entertain his thoughts. Rather than invited to share his paranoia, we experience the world through a knowingly mad lens.

Like Farrow’s Rosemary, he begins to suspect his weirdo neighbors of harboring a conspiracy against him; and like Deneuve’s Carole, his paranoia will steer him to madness. But where Rosemary’s suspicions were proven correct and Carole’s delusions were the product of a disturbed mind, Trelkovsky seems to go crazy simply because it’s expected of him. It’s this quality that makes the film so memorably bizarre as well as darkly funny; indeed, this may be the most Kafkaesque of all his feature films.

Darkly funny (watch Polanski smack a kid! Try not to laugh!), frightening and imaginatively directed (Polanski’s head bouncing like a basketball), the DostoyevskianThe Tenant remains supremely creepy.
