Faye Dunaway plays New York photographer Laura Mars, whose provocative work has made her a celebrity. However, she suddenly begins to be plagued by visions of her friends and associates being brutally murdered, as they happen. As she meets a police officer (Tommy Lee Jones) and the killer closes in on Laura herself, who is killing everyone she knows?
Filmed in the era when New York was a grimy, crime ridden, almost dystopic place, the visuals of the film are terrific in creating an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. The script, initially by John Carpenter but then changed by subsequent writers, has echoes of his own later work but also connections to giallo, and other POV killer movies (which are explored in the extras). It’s maybe the case that in a thriller with such a heavy body count, it’s whodunnit elements are somewhat rudimentary, as it tries to make everyone a suspect until the final few minutes. It’s a film to enjoy maybe for its style as much as anything else, although the essay booklet included makes the case for other interesting layers beneath the surface as well.
Extras are an Irvin Kershner commentary originally recorded in 1999, plus a trailer, a short interview on the film and its place sandwiched between the end of the European giallo period and start of the American slasher cycle Carpenter’s own ‘Halloween’ would launch the same year, and which ‘Mars’ has elements of both within, plus some other bits and bobs.
An OK package of extras that don’t take long to watch.
