Look. Don't "Don't"

Amendment to my July 8, 2010 post.

One of the masterworks of the eerie:  Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now.

The atmosphere of Venice in its shadows or watery winter daylight or dark restoration interiors, blind women who can 'see'.    Grief-struck mother who needs to believe.  Ghostly figure just beyond reach, darting into an alley across the small midnight bridge.

We're lost.
