Catherine Deneuve: Scary Yet So Stylish
This Halloween, if you want to pass on the chaotic parties, rent yourself Roman Polanski’s 1965 classic, Repulsion. Catherine Deneuve plays a repressed Belgian manicurist left alone in a London apartment by her sister and creepy boyfriend. What ensues is a series of hallucinations, uncontrollable demons, and the evolution of beautiful woman gone stark mad.
The gradual intensity of the jazz score (by Chico Hamilton) sets against the moodiness of black and white film (created by the same cinematographer who made Dr. Strangelove)… [MORE] It’s the Fashionista’s perfect Halloween gift with a few DVD’s available on eBay starting at $10. For the die hard Deneuve fans, get yourself the classic Repulsion movie poster as well. All New Yorkers will be happy to know that The Film Forum will be screening the new 35 MM Print in the big apple on October 31st, running through November 8th.
