Now playing at Film Forum, you must see this creepy, haunting, and unforgettable masterwork by Polanski about sexual repression and insanity. Deneuve is both stunningly beautiful and eerie as Carol, a strange and remote manicurist that lives with her sister.
When the sister leaves Carol alone for a weekend, everything spirals slowly out of control. We see her intruder fantasy-nightmares through her eyes and are deeply disturbed. An amazing thriller unlike anything else. As a interesting note, Repulsion depicted the first orgasm ever heard in British cinema.
