DO LOOK NOW: THE CINEMATOGRAPHY OF TONY RICHMOND
Double Feature! Tony Richmond In Person!
DON'T LOOK NOW / CANDYMAN
Discussion between films with cinematographer Tony Richmond.
DON'T LOOK NOW
1973, Paramount, 110 min, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

Director Nicolas Roeg’s atmospheric adaptation of Daphne DuMaurier’s story is a haunting meditation on the consequences of repressing traits inside us that could mean the difference between life and death. Antiquities restorer Donald Sutherland and wife Julie Christie, in mourning after the accidental drowning of their young daughter, journey to Venice during the off-season to help renovate a church. But their encounter with two strange sisters, one of whom is a blind clairvoyant, pulls them into shadowy back alleys and deserted canals and onto the radar of a warped serial killer terrorizing the city. A brilliant variation on Italy’s homegrown giallothriller genre then enjoying success in early 1970s European cinema.


35 mm!

CANDYMAN
1992, Sony Repertory, 99 min, USA, Dir: Bernard Rose

Perhaps the greatest horror film of the ’90s is this cerebral and chilling classic by director Bernard Rose, based on Clive Barker's short story “The Forbidden.” Virginia Madsen plays a grad student researching urban legends when she comes across the tale of Candyman, a frightening one-armed man who appears when you say his name into a mirror five times; he’s played brilliantly by Tony Todd. Score by Philip Glass.


Screening formats: blu-ray (DON'T LOOK NOW), 35mm (CANDYMAN)
