|Catherine Deneuve running the |
wacko gauntlet in "Repulsion"
Directed by Roman Polanski and starring a totally unhinged Catherine Deneuve, it is the story of Carol, a Belgian woman living in London with her sister, Helen.
It is obvious from the beginning of the story that Carol has issues - major issues. She goes through her day in a semi-catatonic state where it seems her fear of the outside world is overwhelming.
It begins to become clear that Carol has both a hatred and fascination with the men around her. After being left alone while her sister and her sister's lover leave for a holiday, Carol goes off the deep end and the film traces the journey from just slightly crazy to full blown psychotic.
This film is not for people who get easily freaked out. Just a word of warning.
