Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland in Don't Look Now.

Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland in Don’t Look Now.

Donald Sutherland (Klute) and Julie Christie (Darling) mesmerize as a married couple on an extended trip to Venice following a family tragedy in Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 horror-thriller Don’t Look Now.

While in that elegantly decaying city, they have a series of inexplicable, terrifying, and increasingly dangerous experiences. A masterpiece from Nicolas Roeg (Insignificance), Don’t Look Now, adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca), is a disturbing tale of the supernatural, as renowned for its innovative editing and haunting cinematography as its explicit eroticism and unforgettable denouement, one of more memorable endings in horror history.

Criterion’s Blu-ray and DVD editions of the movie contain the following:

  • New 4K digital restoration, approved by director Nicolas Roeg, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
    • New conversation between the film’s editor, Graeme Clifford, and film writer Bobbie O’Steen
