REPULSION

50th Anniversary!

(1965) dir Roman Polanski w/Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser [105 min; 35mm]
Deneuve plays an alienated young woman left alone in her sister’s apartment who, as Polanski’s subjective camera follows with youthful abandon, descends into madness. As with Manderlay in REBECCA, the apartment is a major character in this masterful psychological thriller.

“Deneuve’s brand of regality mixed with hidden wildness is tantalizing on the screen; had she been born 10 years prior, she would have made a great Hitchcock Blonde.” Manish Mathur writes about Catherine Deneuve, Roman Polanski, and REPULSION for Brattle Film Notes

“Deneuve became famous for her detachment and here, her coldness has magnificence; her cool-as-a-cucumber reserve serves her well as she descends into absolute madness.” Leo Racicot explores the dark corners of REPULSION for Brattle Film Notes
