  • Repulsion

    1965. Great Britain. Directed by Roman Polanski. Screenplay by Polanski, Gérard Brach. Music by Chico Hamilton. With Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser. In this masterpiece of psychological horror, Deneuve charts a woman's agonizing psychic disintegration. Anticipating Rosemary's Baby, Polanski's first English-language film evokes a woman's sexual repression, torment, and isolation through outwardly expressionistic signs, including claustrophobic corridors, putrefying animal carcasses, and magnified and distorted sounds. Hamilton, who studied drums with Jo Jones and toured with Count Basie, creates an aptly chilling score of jittery percussion, electric guitar, and flute. 105 min.

  • On Fighting Witches

    1965. Sweden/USA. Directed by Robert Shaye. Music by Don Cherry. Swedish students celebrate a modern-day walpurgisnacht in this award-winning short film by Shaye, the co-founder of New Line Cinema. 18 min.
