DEATH WATCH
1980, Westchester Films, 117 min, United States, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

Shot in Glasgow, Scotland, this unsettling drama takes place in a future where fatal illness is as rare as voyeurism is rampant. Besieged by reporters after she has been diagnosed with an incurable disease, Romy Schneider takes off with acquaintance Harvey Keitel - unaware that a camera has been implanted in his eye to film her final days for a reality show. With Harry Dean Stanton (as a ratings-hungry TV exec) and Max von Sydow.
