Storyline

Like Polanski's heroine in Repulsion, Susannah York's character is one that is seemingly haunted by memories of undisclosed magnitude. These memories are perhaps rooted in some sort of past sexual turmoil that causes York's character to see men as inherently the same. Written by Ed <repulsion2000@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Director Robert Altman once said of the casting of Susannah York: "It was after I'd seen Susannah in something I particularly didn't like her in. I saw Jane Eyre (1970) on a trans-Atlantic plane flight one night. And I couldn't figure out why I was sitting there for that long looking at that awful film. George C. Scott was atrocious in it. But Susannah's face intrigued me so much. I never got tired of her. The problem with 'Images' is that the girl is on the screen for just about 100% of the time. So I was very conscious of the fact that we needed someone who the audience wasn't going to tire of. And now, in retrospect, there's no way I can readjust my mind backwards to think anybody by Susannah York could have played it". See more »

3 April 2004 | by (Mississippi, United States) – See all my reviews

This is an art film that experiments with dreamlike imagery. Many viewers might turn it off in frustration within twenty minutes,but I couldn't take my eyes off it. Altman's film plays with the idea of showing us the mind of Cathryn as a display to observe. We get twists upon twists and it's done in such a labyrinthine maze. We have no foundation to stand on,her mind just keeps feeding us hallucinations. I was compelled throughout the whole film taking every frame into my mind. It is one of the strangest,most fascinating portraits of the mind that I have ever seen. It just never stops delivering puzzling images and the film takes no shape depending instead on surreal happenings. This is Altman's artifice..he simply provides twists to keep us wondering what will happen next. As characters come and go,we are left wondering what will pop into her mind next.My favorite Altman film..a mesmerizing masterpiece of the disturbed mind and what can fluctuate from it. *****/*****
