Duncan Gray's rating of the film Don't Look Now

From the Golden Age of Paranoia Thrillers (the 1970s) comes the exact midpoint between Hitchcock and Lynch. Plot-wise, we're in the realm of schlock or pulp (serial killers and clairvoyants wandering about), but the rigorous visuals carry it into the realm of dreams, hitting a sweetspot where just enough is left said and unsaid to make it both lucid, coherent, and aimed directly at the subconscious. A masterpiece.
