Nicolas Roeg's stylish and frightening occult thriller has gained in critical appreciation since it was originally released nearly four decades ago(!), and this extras-laden Blu-Ray set does it justice by gathering together the various supplemental features from earlier home video editions along with newly shot interviews with Donald Sutherland and additional crew members. I doubt anyone will be too disappointed with the extras on this disc. That noted, the audio and visual remaster featured on this Blu-Ray is of particular importance as it offers a significant upgrade in both picture and sound to all earlier home video editions. The colourful picture is noticeably sharper than earlier DVD editions and does a great job of showcasing Roeg's remarkable, often near-hallucinatory imagery. Perhaps even more importantly, the sound is equally improved and eliminates the various distortion issues that plagued earlier DVD releases. DON'T LOOK NOW came out on DVD in both the USA and UK a few years back and various online forums did their best to decide which of the two sounded superior. Sadly, each DVD sounded pretty rotten and did little justice to the film, the dialogue or Pino Donaggio's haunting score. This new Blu-Ray (proudly displaying a cover sticker noting "Picture and Audio Restoration Supervised and Approved by Nic Roeg") fixes those issues entirely and presents the movie in a clearly listenable form for perhaps the first time on home video. It sounds terrific.

DON'T LOOK NOW is a masterpiece and this Blu-Ray provides a definite, welcome upgrade from any DVD edition you might own. Now, could someone do a special edition of Roeg's weird, sexy and stylish EUREKA?

This is a brief comment on the warnings about the poor quality of the soundtrack on Don't Look Now.

I'm referring below to the Blu Ray version of this film which was released by Studio Canal on July 4 2011 and I'm writing this for the benefit of those who might be worried that this version might still contain the audio problem referred to by others.

This version of the film has been digitally restored under the supervision and with the approval of the Director Nic Roeg. I can assure those interested that the audio quality of this version is fine, given that it was recorded in mono, and is presented here in mono. There is no hiss or any other sound problem with the audio track and my system is a reasonably sophisticated one. The TV is a 60" Pioneer KRP 600A, the AV amp is a Denon AVR 2809, the Blu Ray disc player is a Denon DVD 2500BT and the speakers are B&W 684s at the front and B&W 686s at the rear. I can assure you that if this problem was still there this set up would pick it up.

a 5 star film without doubt BUT like the previous R2 release, this 'special edition' is still plagued with dreadful sound - harsh, trebly, distorted and with absurd amounts of noise reduction. Why Why Why. Roeg fans will want the commentary but there's nothing else new here and for the film, stick with the R1 edition. Sorry to sound like a geek but it makes me so angry, this fantastic film deserves better.

I first saw this film as a teenager on a black and white TV late at night. I didn't know much about the film except that it was a horror film of sorts. I soon found that it was so much more. As the film progressed it got very late, but I knew I couldn't go to bed until it was over. It left me speechless. The direction, the acting, the music, and especially the feeling of escalating dread - what would happen at the end? The ending not only surprised me, but actually made me gasp in shock.
A couple, bereaved after their daughter's death, stay awhile in wintry Venice. Two elderly sisters claim to be in contact with the dead girl, but are they telling the truth, or are they con artists? Add to this a series of strange events and a murderer terrorising the city...
This could have been (and indeed sounds like) a cheap horror flick. The reason "Don't Look Now" is a classic (an overused word, but true in this case) is that we care about the Baxters. Sutherland and Christie are thoroughly believable, especially when they have lines about the occult that could easily be corny. The same is true of Roeg's direction - instead of cheese we get a real sensation of doom. Rather than picture-postcard Venice we have rats, crumbling buildings and a bleakly-coloured maze full of confusion.
We are also left wondering about the supporting cast (even at the end we are not sure of everyone's good character). The two dotty old sisters. The shifty priest. The hotel manager. Even the police detective seems a little suspicious. Visual motifs recur - a child's ball, the red of the dead girl's coat - are they hints from the dead girl to her parents?
Of course the film is famous for its sex scene, and it is justly celebrated.

"One of the best horror films ever made," proclaims the cover quote from The Times. And it is, but only in the way that A Clockwork Orange is a pretty shrewd teen angst drama, or Taxi Driver is the finest movie about public transport since Mutiny On The Buses. Don't Look Now is simply a great film, great because it defies categorization, because it has no precedent. For one thing, it's less a horror film than a ghost story. But where's the ghost? There is a haunting, to be sure, but it's the haunting of a couple, John and Laura Baxter, by the memory of their daughter's accidental drowning. They take a break in grimy, off-season Venice (hardly a shrewd move, it being a drowned city) where the John (Donald Sutherland) oversees some restoration work on a church while Laura (Julie Christie) is befriended by two elderly women who may or may not be clairvoyant and who may or may not offer her a chance to communicate with her dead daughter. John scoffs at her fascination with such mumbo-jumbo, yet seems himself dogged by strange premonitions. Yes, you've guessed it: she isn't psychic at all. He is.
And that's about it. Not much of a premise. And not a lot of plot. But plenty of mood. This may be based on a Daphne Du Maurier story, it may feature two of the finest leads in seventies cinema, but essentially the film is carried by Roeg's otherworldly direction - all distorted lenses, bizarre cross-cutting and non-linear timescales. Roeg's genius, as previously declared in Performance and Walkabout, is his ability to position his films not merely from the point of view of his protagonists, but to place the camera firmly inside their minds. Time, continuity of events, even mere sounds and images become abstractions, all mixed-up through Roeg's wholly unique use of montage.
