Classic Movie Review: Repulsion
Slowly though we are introduced to her psychological Hell; her hallucinations, her fears and loathing of men and of sex. This leads to a breakdown full of symbolism as she crawls closer and closer to a violent and disturbing climax.
This film was one of the first of its kind and first in that the killer is a woman. Colorization would certainly ruin the look of this masterpiece and Ms. Deneuve's performance is nothing short of miraculous.
She stumbles her way through life, never making eye contact as she delivers lines in between lulls; at times robotic and at times creepy.
In all she powerfully evokes pity even while killing.
The film is tight in terms of art and entertainment. This film blazed a trail that those who have followed have never done it justice.
