(Roman Polanski, UK 1965, 105 min.)
Special Presentation! Fragile, awkward Carol (Catherine Deneuve) is left alone in her London flat when her sister goes on holiday, giving the young girl’s burgeoning instability room to flower. Suffering from agoraphobia and hallucinations, Carol locks herself in the apartment and trusts no one … and when intruders do arrive, the consequences are deadly. Polanski’s first film in English, Repulsion remains a supreme masterpiece, a chilling descent into the abyss that benefits greatly from the director’s ability to transform physical space into psychological terror.
