THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HUNTER AND A KILLER ...IS HIS PREY
A serial killer is on the loose in and around the small community of Globe, Arizona, and housewife Joan White (Cathy Moriarty) gradually comes to suspect that her opera-loving hi-fi engineer husband Paul (David Keith) might know more than he s letting on...
So far so familiar, but in the hands of British visionary Donald Cammell (who wrote and co-directed Performance with Nicolas Roeg), the film becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and ideas, spanning everything from Apache folklore, desert landscapes and stylish murder set-pieces that recall Dario Argento to a painfully vivid dissection of the emotional fissures undermining a modern marriage. It s all set to an equally eclectic score co-written by Pink Floyd s Nick Mason.
Described by the distinguished critic David Thomson as "one of the great secret works in cinema", White of the Eye is one of the most bizarre and unforgettable thrillers ever made.

Magnificent direction from Donald Cammell, with superb performances from Cathy Moriarty and David Keith. This is very disturbing in parts but also tender, thought-provoking and utterly gripping from start to finish.
Making wonderful use of the Tuscon locations and featuring a wealth of quirky minor characters, White Of The Eye must be seen! Any serious film fan will love this!
Deserves a proper release on DVD as this particular transfer is pretty awful.
I await with bated breath a restored Bluray release for this incredible film.
The movie follows a typical 80's slasher framework for the first two acts. This cliched, predictable structure allows plenty of opportunity to explore the issues mentioned above.
In the third act, beginning with a grisly bathroom discovery, the slasher movie genre stutters. Expectations here would be for a frantic, exciting chase, with the tables ultimately turned on the killer. We don't get that - really - and this has led some to judge the film as a failure.
Instead, Cammell explores more fully the relationship between the husband and wife. In a hugely unsettling sequence we see their original courtship, the closeness between them now and their reluctance to function in the world apart from each other.
It might be risky, but Cammell pulls it off - just - to make a film that is compelling, disturbing and absurdly romantic. The epilogue, on the surface lifted directly from the 80's straight-to-video handbook, contains an elegance and poignancy which throws this movie in a wonderfully uplifting light.
Performances from the two principles, particularly Moriarty, are peerless. Cinematography and editing are of a similar high standard to Cammell's other work. For some, the movie will be stylistically a period piece, but it is none the worse for this.
If you want a typical slasher movie, get Halloween instead. However if you can see past the cliched 80's format, occasionally awkward arhouse pretensions and extremely challenging subversion of genre, "White of the Eye" is one of the best-observed relationship dramas you are likely to see this, or any, year.
White of the Eye never once delves into been there done that territory at least without acknowledgment and reconstruction of context and for a genre as stalwart as thriller, that is a towering achievement. An achievement only a truly devoted artist like Cammell could be responsible for. I have a feeling i will be revisiting this film many a time with afresh opinion after each viewing. The hypnotic soundtrack and Argento set pieces don't hurt either.
At its heart are two fine performances from David Keith and Cathy Moriarty, and they do more to keep the film on track that Cammell does. Keith’s small town audio engineer and decent family man finds himself on the suspects list in series of murders of wealthy women because he’s one of 42 people in that state to have bought a certain kind of tyre.Read more ›
