Sex scene aside, Don't Look Now recalls recent fare as diverse as The Sixth Sense, The Blair Witch Project, and Frantic -- with Christie communing with two elderly psychics and Sutherland haunted by visions of his dead daughter's red raincoat. Sutherland and Christie are phenomenal, leaving the Roegian metaphysical mumbo jumbo in their wake as they show us how some real acting gets done.
Now available on DVD, Don't Look Now should earn the audience it deserves. Alas, the DVD is a straight affair -- no extras here aside from the original trailer, and no answers as to what really went on in that infamous love scene...
Big bag o' bones.
