Director: Roman Polanski. Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser. 105 min. Unrated. Horror.
The actual demonstration of insanity by Catherine Deneuve here is so strong, I'm thinking the only way Polanski could have been so accurate, is to have experienced a touch of psychosis himself (but then you could ask: "How do you know?"). We're in the psychological genre territory again: If the story told is from the point-of-view of a psychotic person, which part of what we see or hear is a delusion/hallucination? Some of it? All of it? The simple horror of the very final scene is devastating. If you haven't seen this yet, don't call yourself a Polanski fan.
