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>

Creepy and spell-binding Altman classic
20 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Yet another film by Robert Altman that sadly languishes in obscurity, which should be a classic. It is a unique film and unlike anything Altman had done. Susannah York is excellent as Cathryn, a writer of children's novels who begins to suffer the worst form of psychosis possible. After going away with her husband Hugh (Rene Auberjonois)to her secluded country home in Ireland for the weekend, Cathyrn's hallucinations worsen. The film is a fascinating character study about her complete descent into madness as her own reality become warped with her delusional fantasy world. The cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond is dreamy and hypnotic with a score by John Williams that is haunting and atmospheric. The film makes many unexpected twists and turns that it would be unthinkable for me to give away. A lost classic that is worth seeking out.
