Don’t Look Now (1973)

Really. Just don’t. Don’t look now… or ever. I won’t apologize to say this movie was truly stupid. You can’t just base an entire movie on cinematography and editing. When that is all you can say about a film or those movies where you say “wow, well the music was good” it means the movie really wasn’t that entertaining. Now, if you only watch movie as art and not to be entertained at all, if you see a movie as an electronic painting on your wall and have no interest in whether there is good writing, acting or some semblance of a story then maybe you’ll like this movie. Okay, now that I’m off my soapbox, I’ll say this about the film. It is just boring. It’s about two hours long, it has almost no horror elements in it until the last four minutes of the film. Donald Sutherland has some of his worst acting in this, especially in the final “scary” scene. Julie Christie was pleasant to look at, but she also has some bad acting moments. All this film has is some cinematography and some editing. They seem to forget to add a movie to those things. A glorified screen-saver that will thrill no one.
