Repulsion


Ever wanted to see Catherine Deneuve get groped by arms coming out of her apartment wall while slowly going mad? Here you go: Roman Polanski's 1965 psychological thriller casts a pitiless eye a Belgian manicurist living in London who slowly begins to lose her mind. Left alone once her sister leaves for a trip with her boyfriend, the French starlet's character properly dives off the deep end; in addition to those aforementioned hallucinated limbs, Polanski uses tweaked sound and suggestive camera angles to give the sense of someone losing their grip on reality. It was the Polish director's first film in English, and a harbringer of the auteur's cinematic nightmares to come. If that cryptic final shot does not make every hair on your body stand on end, you may want to consult a physician. You've got today and tomorrow to check it out.

Repulsion screens at 1:20, 3:25, 5:30, 7:35 and 9:40pm at Film Forum.
