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.

Great story, characters, soundtrack etc and all in perfect picture and sound quality.
Someone is murdering local housewives in an industrial desert town but who is responsible for these seemingly motiveless crimes?
Watch and find out.
Meanwhile, a group of detectives are investigating a series of horrific ritualistic murders, and suspicion falls upon Paul. Could this loving family man really be the perpetrator of these crimes, or is there someone else behind it?
This is an excellent variation on a well worn theme, as Donald Cammell creates a film that is both beautiful to look at, and offers a unique perspective on the slasher genre. Keith gives a remarkable performance as the perfect husband/father with skeletons in the cupboard, and Cathy Moriarty is equally good as his concerned wife.
The only small gripe I have is the ending. It seems so out of place from the rest of the film that it does dissapoint slightly, but there have been so many wonderful moments up to that point, it can be easily forgiven.
A fascinating, unique film, that has the ability to dazzle the senses, and leave a lasting impression on this viewer at least. Unfortunately, Cammell commited suicide in 1996, but at least we have films such as this to remember him by. Watch and enjoy
White of the Eye is an extremely interesting film, were a happliy married women discovers her doting husband is a serial killer. Whilst the husband clearly holds strong family values and strives to be a good husband, he's also deeply un-hinged with a strange spiritual cosmic view with regards to existence. This is surreal stuff full of interesting dialoque and unusual imagery. Shamefully overlooked.
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.
