The Wild and Woolly Film Series continues next Sunday, October 21 at 7 p.m. with what curator Todd Brashear calls, “One of the creepiest movies of all time.”
“Don’t Look Now,” directed by Nicolas Roeg, follows a married couple who travel to Italy after the recent accidental death of their daughter. Two sinister sisters lead the couple down the rabbit hole of clairvoyance and the supernatural. The 1973 film stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie.
According to the press release:
Don’t Look Now is renowned for its atypical but innovative editing style, and its use of recurring motifs and themes. The film often employs flashbacks and flashforwards in keeping with the depiction of precognition, but some scenes are intercut or merged to alter the viewer’s perception of what is really happening. Originally causing controversy on its initial release due to an explicit and-for the time-very graphic sex scene between Christie and Sutherland, its reputation has grown considerably in the years since, and it is now acknowledged as a modern classic and an influential work in horror and British film.
A cash bar will open at 6 p.m. Admission is free for Friends of the Clifton Center and $5 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Carmichael’s Bookstore, 2720 Frankfort Avenue, or at the Clifton Center box office beginning at 6 the day of the event.
