Zodiac: Scorpio (the ending has a sting)
With one of the most shocking endings in cinema history, Nicolas Roeg delivers a film about mood and brooding premonition. Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie are a married couple on an extended trip to Venice following a family tragedy. While in the elegantly decaying city, they have an encounter with a blind clairvoyant who warns of danger. Adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier, this brilliantly disturbing tale of the supernatural is renowned for its innovative editing, haunting cinematography, and naturalistic eroticism. Watch the mirrors.
“It’s hypnotically brilliant as it works remorselessly towards a sense of dislocation in time.”
—Tom Milne, Time Out
