Don't Look Now (1973)
This adaptation of a novel by Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca) was hailed at the time of release for its imagery and editing, the former heavy on allegories, the latter almost frenetically fast – both of which feels overdone today. Director Nicolas Roeg is clearly influenced by the Nouvelle Vague, the films of which also was heavy on cross-cutting, and in Don't Look Now, Roeg gives us juxtaposition after juxtaposition to visualize the ominousness of the situation. Despite some level of suspense and mystique, almost every segment of the film seems dated today, except for the remarkably realistic and steaming sex scene between stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. For films from this period, it is usually the other way around.
