So I just watched "Don't look now" (1973)...

A colleague at work never saw "The Ring" so I lent her my dvd. When she returned it, she said she had trouble sleeping after seeing it and it really creeped her out. She also suggested I see "Don't look now" with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie.

I just saw it tonight on tv and boy was I disapointed!!

Spoiler:
Baxter gets killed by a CIRCUS MIDGET who just "happens" to wear the same plastic red coat his dead daughter used to wear? I'm sorry but a midget with a knife is still a midget! Just punt it ! Was the murdering midget also a psychic who could read into his mind?


Ugh. I dunno if this movie just did not age well or if I'm becoming a sarcastic bastard... Anybody seen this movie? Opinions?

It's a film with a divided audience. You didn't like it. That's fine, it's not for everyone.

As for the "just punt it" remark, dude was in shock. You would be too if
Spoiler:
you had been chasing someone that reminded you way too much of a lost loved one not to be that someone, and had ignored your own safety and the warnings of others in chasing your target.

Lame to some, hautingly evocative to others.
